The team at figur8 announced today that they will be releasing their research and development kit. The kit is aimed at universities and research institutes looking to digitize 3D body movement. The wearables for assessment and rehab offer instantaneous feedback, something not available to other motion capturing systems, but it has several other advantages.
Anyone who has spent time wearing the reflective dots of a motion tracking imaging system or a bodysuit with a network of Inertia Measuring Units (IMUs) will understand in an instant the thought that goes into our design philosophy.
The figur8 team is hard at work on the last stages of beta testing wearables for assessment, training and rehab. The team hopes to democratize the process of quantifying athletic performance in a scientifically meaningful manner.
