Functional Assessment Of Biomechanics System (F.A.B.)
The FAB System (Functional Assessment of Biomechanics ™) developed by BIOSYN SYSTEMS INC. is the world’s first full body wireless motion capture system based on “camera free” inertial sensor technology. This innovative technology allows completely free movement without the need to stay in view of cameras.
FAB is a completely portable system and can be packed up and transported in a standard size briefcase. FAB only requires a data logger or laptop, and up to 17 small sensors which are attached to user selectable body segments. These sensors can be attached under or above clothing.
FAB features a static and dynamic calibration routine. This guarantees quick and easy setup and use, even for the novice, and guarantees constant accuracy without drift over long periods of recording. The system is ready to start within 5 minutes and recording time can be up to 8 hour to 10 hours.
Data can be recorded in real time with direct connection to your laptop or recorded using a handheld Data Logger for post recording data analysis and animation. This makes FAB the most portable motion capture system available.
FAB is used in many industries including sports medicine, clinical and industrial applications. It has been used for athletic training, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, ergonomic studies, industrial design, and the entertainment industry.
The system can be used in almost any environment, both indoors and outdoors. FAB has been successfully used during skiing and snowboarding events, cycling, driving, in-field testing, and many other locations where other motion capture devices could not go.
