The innovative product is entitled as FatoXtract; a portmanteau coined by blending the words “fato” (“suit” in Portuguese) and “extract”. FatoXtract consists on a modular full body motion capture (MOCAP) suit. By benefiting from inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors, ZigBee local communication, WiFi technology, a central CPU processing unit and several controllers, it is able to track the 3D human kinematics virtually anywhere.
FatoXtract does not require any camera system, markers, or system infrastructure. The modular nature of FatoXtract increases the freedom of movement of the subject while reducing the preparation time and lower on-body weight of the system. FatoXtract applications include biomechanics, rehabilitation, ergonomics, gaming and sports. Additionally, FatoXtract is an internet-connected product. As such, it automatically connects to the Ingeniarius Cloud , thus endowing it with real-time debugging and monitoring over the internet. All captures are made easily using web applications to store and analyze the data.
