A new platform based on IEEE802.15.4 wireless inertial sensors for motion caption and assessment. [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Systems for motion caption and assessment in biomechanics are mostly based on photogrammetry. These systems are restricted to the movement analysis lab and moreover, they are very expensive. New advances in MEMs (Microelectromechanical) and wireless technologies enable inertial sensing as an alternatives for motion caption. This paper presents a wireless inertial sensor including 3 linear accelerometers, 3 gyroscopes and 3 magnetometers. The IMU (inertial measurement unit) includes a IEEE802.15.4 compliant transceiver. The platform expands the frontiers of movement analysis for motion caption in real scenarios like sports and wearable robotics since it does not need structurated labs. Besides the advantages, the cost of the platform is much lower comparing actual photogrammetry systems.
