2in1 Sensor: Inertial + EMG
The compact 2in1-sensor allows a synchroneous measurement of muscle activity (EMG) and a three dimensional measurement of movement. The wireless data transmission gives a high range of flexibility in application. The integrated intertial sensors have a precise output in three dimensions of the movement and its related angles. By positioning of two sensors on adjacent body segments, the range of motion and the angular position of the intermediate joint can be determined. The system is designed to be expanded for the use of a single joint measurement up to a simultaneous whole-body measurement (with up to 16 sensors). The integrated surface EMG detects the muscle activity of up to 16 muscle groups at the same time with bipolar electrodes.
