Designed for research by researchers

Our proprietary stretch sensors capture muscle microexpressions in real time. The companion apps allow you to record video and create visualizations of different muscle interactions. The figur8 R&D Kit smoothly and easily abstracts neuromuscular responses.

Product Features

3D Motion Tracking
Muscle Activation Measurement
Wireless Wearable System

Technical Specs

  • Linear Displacement Sensor

    Measures muscle activation timing and intensity.

  • 9-Axis Inertial Measuring Unit

    Measures joint angles, acceleration, and movements in the 3D space.

  • Wireless Data Streaming

    50 Hz stretch sensor; 25 Hz (configurable) IMU.

  • Rechargeable Battery

    Up to 4 hours battery life.

  • Disposable tape attachment

    Medical-grade tape with snaps for the sensor ensure that the stretch sensors will stay where you place them. It also allows you to apply the sensors directly to joints and muscle groups for high-resolution motion tracking.

  • Compression garment

    You can also purchase compression sleeves with pre-attached snaps. They are reusable and come in a variety of sizes. figur8 also sells kits that help you attach snaps to your own garments.
