MotionNode is designed for wearable or human motion tracking applications. The sensor hardware and software are optimized for this use case.

The measurement range of each sensor targets typical human motion. The rotation algorithm is tuned for motions that are possible with the human body.

MotionNode will work with other types of motion. However, its intended range of motion should be used as a guideline to decide whether MotionNode is suitable for your application.


MotionNode is an excellent choice for your research and development project. Get up and running in minutes with our robust and easy to use inertial sensor module.

You have live and recorded access to all measurement channels including rotation, linear acceleration, angular velocity, and magnetic field strength. Use the developer kit to create custom apps. Implement your custom processing and algorithms with the high quality MotionNode measurement data as inputs.

Virtual Reality

MotionNode is well suited for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications. There is a wide range of uses, including flight simulation, CAVE environments, industrial training, motion capture, camera tracking, and more. MotionNode is easily adaptable for use in any of these applications.

We include real-time plugins for the following VR enabled game engines:

  • Unity
  • Unreal Engine


Rotation and inertial input devices, desktop motion capture, 3D content creation products, and more.

MotionNode is designed for easy integration with existing animation pipelines. You get the following standard data formats out of the box:

  • Autodesk FBX
  • Biovision Hierarchy (BVH)
  • Comma separated text (CSV)

You also get live-streaming plugins for popular game engines:

  • Unity
  • Unreal Engine


Measuring the orientation of body segments with precision and minimal physical encumbrance is crucial to biomechanics research.

MotionNode provides orientation, acceleration, and angular rate data in real-time, making it perfect for almost any biomechanics research application. The small form of the device allows for easy attachment to the body.

We also offer Shadow, a complete wearable system for motion capture. We recommend Shadow for tracking the lower body, upper body, or full body.
