AmmSensor™ is a revolutionary new real-time wireless 3D sensor that is Bluetooth enabled. This 3D (9 Degrees-of-Freedom (IMU = Accelerometer: Ax, Ay, Az; Gyroscope: Gx, Gy, Gz; Magnetometer: Mx, My, Mz; 250Hz ++)) inertial measurement unit (IMU) samples at 250Hz and provides motion data by employing three miniature tri-axial MEMS chips to capture acceleration, the earth’s magnetic vector and angular velocity. AmmSensor™ combined with AmmGraph3D™ software will capture and display both the raw sensor signals:
AmmSensor™ is the most versatile, lowest cost Bluetooth enabled IMU/sensor in the world today! It can measure human motion, machine motion or any motion! AmmSensor™ has been designed for high speed sports motion (2000d/s and 12g) but can easily be switched to measure slower motion for rehabilitation applications (400d/s and -4g). The attractive slim line package can easily be worn on the wrist, leg, around the waist or on any part of the body!
AmmSensor™ can be used in many life science areas and in a myriad of industrial applications: • Biomechanics Research Motor Control • Rehabilitation • Biomedical Engineering • Sports • Physical Therapy • Psychology • Neurology • Educational Demonstrations, e.g. Physics Classes. Also in: • Aging • Slip and Fall • Gait • VR • Forensic Medicine • Augmented Reality • 3D Simulation Training • Gaming Industry • Ergonomics • Aerospace • Automotive • Marine • Military.
AmmSensor’s output can be changed between binary and ASCII by the user. Binary mode provides 250 complete samples per second, whereas ASCII output is 125 samples per second, and is intended for ease-of-use with any terminal program that can receive 115 KBaud data. The software also computers unit vectors of the sensor’s orientation. From these unit vectors many different 3D angle sets can be computed; such as Euler angles, Cardan Angles etc. These data are transmitted from the AmmSensor™ in real-time to a Windows compatible laptop. AmmGrraph3D™ allows for capture to a comma delimited file, which opens MS Excel to display and save the current data.
Place one AmmSensor™ on the tibia
and one AmmSensor on the foot to
measure dorsiflexion and plantarflexion.
Write your own programs in most languages: VB, C#, C, Matlab and Labview using a simple software demonstration program in VB that we provide. Since the AmmSensor™ uses Bluetooth you could even develop programs of your own for Windows Mobile, iPhone or Droid smart phones. This allows for ultimate portability.
