Xsens set to make its high-end motion analysis tech available for physical activity practitioners

Physiotherapists, fitness coaches and other physical health practitioners will be offered access to leading motion analysis technology normally only available to top universities and elite sports clubs.

Dutch tech firm Xsens – a 3D motion tracking tech specialist – is making its services available to practitioners for the first time, allowing them to improve their understanding of a client’s physical health with easy-to-read data which informs objective rehabilitation and care.

Until now, completing a complex analysis of human motion has usually required technical expertise in data scripting and reporting, often unavailable to specialists in physical health care.

While high-end universities and research facilities require Xsens’ full motion capture suit and MVN software to conduct larger research, independent professionals only need specific data and less processing.

Xsens’ new MotionCloud takes care of the processing, with Automatic reporting designed to display the data in multiple formats tailored to each user’s respective industry.

The system is able to provide a full report, graphs, and a digital recording of an avatar – completing the movements are generated and stored on the Xsens MotionCloud platform.

All that’s required is an internet connection and any computer or laptop, providing access to files from multiple locations simultaneously.

As part of its plans to expand into the new area of business, Xsens has also launched a new Automatic Reporting service, which is able to instantly present complex movement data in an accessible, easy-to-read report using its online MotionCloud platform.

The service will allow users to choose their desired pricing tier based on the number of reports needed per month. Starting out at €8 per report, users that opt for multiple reports can reduce that fee to €3 per report.

Data is stored for free and can be accessed from anywhere by connecting to MotionCloud.

Peter Hartman, Product Manager at Xsens said: “This is more than a feature launch, we’re aiming to connect to an entirely new community of professionals and provide the most precise inertial motion capture technology on the market in a format that is both accessible and functional.

"The added depth motion capture brings to physical health care, sports and ergonomics is far beyond anything possible by observation alone – it will significantly expand the service offering of our users and improve the well-being and physical health of people everywhere.”
