Research+ is a product that enables researchers to customise our sensors to meet the specific requirements of their projects.
Choose from Velcro bands, neoprene sleeves or adhesives to apply the sensors to the subject. The preferred choice will depend on the specific application. For example, neoprene sleeves work very well for the calf region for running and knee assessments. Velcro bands work very well for the shoulder and upper limb.
The movement sensors are 48.2mm x 28.5mm x 9.2mm. The movement & EMG sensors are 48.2mm x 28.5mm x 10.2mm. A single movement sensor weighs 13.5 grams. A single movement & EMG sensor weighs 17.5 grams.
The accelerometer chip can record up to 1,000Hz. The scale ranges for the accelerometer vary depending on what sensor you use. Standard Sensor: +/- 2g, +/- 4g, +/- 8g, +/- 16g. Premium Sensor: +/- 2g, +/- 4g, +/- 8g, +/- 16g, +/- 100g, +/- 200g, +/- 400g.
The gyroscope chip can record up to 1,000Hz. The rate in which the gyroscope can record at, varies depending on what sensor you use. Standard Sensor: +/- 250°/s, +/- 500°/s, +/- 1,000°/s, +/- 2,000°/s. Premium Sensor: +/- 250°/s, +/- 500°/s, +/- 1,000°/s, +/- 2,000°/s, 4,000°/s.
All full rate recording with all sensors being used, the usual battery life is 24 hours. By knowing the desired output, the settings are able to be modified to allow longer sessions to be recorded, with the maximum duration currently at 16 days.
