Xsens launch motion capture suit for accurate performance analysis

Dutch tech developer Xsens has developed the MVN Suit, a self-contained motion capture suit designed to enable motion capture in any environment, including extreme situations such as mountain biking or sky diving, without the need for cameras, sensors or stages.

The suit is built to overcome the effects of magnetic distortion – a previously uncontrollable environmental factor where magnetic interference from nearby metals corrupts motion data – promising to deliver clear and accurate data.

An on-body pack with a battery life of 12 hours records information. Ultra-small sensors are designed to accommodate movements including stunts and rolls.

Hein Beute, director of product marketing and head project manager, says: “Our core aim has always been to make performance analysis easier and more accurate. We can do this with total flexibility via our inertia motion capture solutions.”

Beute adds: “Our MVN system can track an athlete’s movement data in any location. Capturing an athlete in their natural competitive environment rather than in a laboratory allows for more authentic motion capture.”

The suit is currently in the final stages of closed beta testing but is expected to be released in coming months.
