System Components & Information

click to zoom in on the Motus System

Motus Bioengineering Inc. has developed two motion monitoring systems that each contain the necessary equipment to begin immediately quantifying human or animal motion. These systems are: 

The Motus Portable System

PC based system Flat panel display 10kg./22b system 110/220 volts switchable power CD/DVD Motus software installed LED motion display Internal power and signal conditioning DC to 30 Hertz bandwidth Carrying case Remote Wireless Control

The Motus Rack-mounted System 

PC based system Flat panel display 110/220 volts switchable power CD/DVD Customer selected storage medium Motus runs up to eight gyroscopes simultaneously Motus software installed Internal power and signal conditioning DC to 30 Hertz bandwidth Heavy duty cart with keyboard caddy and over sized wheels Remote Wireless Control Analog output option

2 Solid State Gyroscopes

  • One gyro with 100 deg/sec range (with 10' cable) for fine motion measurements such as tremors.
  • One gyro with 1250 deg/sec range (with 10' cable) for large motion measurements such as gait.

Custom Windows Based Software

  • Power spectrum graph (fast Fourier transform /FFT) 
  • Real time strip chart 
  • RMS angle rate and position calculated
  • Sharpness of resonance (Q) estimated 
  • Peak frequency and magnitude presented 
  • Automatic file storage/export function
  • Patient data fields and memo capability
  • Customized reporting functions 
  • Vertical scaling options including auto scale for ease in report generation
  • Variable run time

Accessories

  • Sensor holding gloves that can be used on either hand. They provide additional protection and secure the attachment of the gyro to the back of the hand and for orientation of the sensitive axis.
  • Soft carrying case for the computer with pockets for the mouse, etc.
  • 25' extension cables for the sensor to allow for gait monitoring
  • Remote initiated flash for video time correlation
  • Specialized sensor holders for the head, legs, arms, and chest.
  • Heavy duty cart with keyboard caddy and over sized wheels.
  • Isolated Analog output module for interfacing with other data acquisition systems.
  • A wireless module for taking remote data during gait and athletic performance studies. It can be used with existing systems.
