All-in-One mobile Biomechanics Laboratory

Portable Lab

As a portable biomechanics lab, the Portable Lab grants a mobile, quick and flexible use of Noraxon measurement systems with diverse equipment; from a modular platform up and until a fully equipped biomechanical technological suite. Use this system in your traditional lab or take it with you. Transport is facilitated by a robust case which also protects the systems.

There are no limits with the technological platfrom of the Portable Lab, which is only powered by USB from a laptop, you alone decide when and where to measure human movements.

Biomechanics Lab in a Box

The portable biomechanics „Lab-in-a-Box“ is based on a modular platform allowing the user the flexibility to work with only one technology or with a fully equipped biomechanical technological suite. Use this system in your traditional lab or take it with you. There are no limits with the technological platfrom of the Portable Lab, which is only powered by USB from a laptop, you alone decide when and where to measure human movements.

Modular platform

Biomechanics lab in two equipment options

The Portable Lab unites EMG, 3D inertial sensors and 2D video analysis in one portable mini-lab.
Noraxon’s MiniDTS receiver allows for the possibility to measure with 4 or 8 EMG sensors or further biomechanical sensors from Noraxon.
Complete 3D kinematics with Noraxon’s intertial sensor system MyoMotion Research Pro.
The robust video capture function of the mobile lab is the newly integrated NiNOX-camera system – die unique USB-powered high definition camera with a high velocoty of up to 250 pictures per second (FPS) and LED light.
Automatically synchronize data recording, real-time processing and biofeedback by the fully functional MR3 analysis software of Noraxon. Custom-made configurations and high-performance one-click-reporting extremely reduce time to set-up and edit.

Selected Application Examples

Symmetry and Coordination Tests

These different tests allow comparison between impaired and unaffected body sides. Display EMG and histogram statistics for unilateral, bilateral multi-directional and symmetrical movements. Evaluate neuromuscular coordination and compare innervation deficits between right and left side.

Average Activation Pattern

Researchers and Clinicians can evaluate repetitive motion sequences and tasks as averaged and time normalized EMG patterns. Analyze the typical innervation structures of movements.

EMG Standard Analysis

The DTS/Telemyo EMG system uses universal protocols for all types of EMG setups. Investigate basic amplitude parameters in selected analysis periods. Use the standard graphs and histograms developed for general analysis questions.

Feedback Training

Any signal measured by the DTS / Telemyo system can be used in real time for biofeedback purposes. Use, for example, the bar graph display of signals to precisely train dysfunctional muscle groups with opto-acoustic feedback and automatic computer-controlled commands.

Gait analysis

The protocol for this analysis has been developed for the unilateral and bilateral investigation of EMG gait patterns in functional gait and walking activities. See typical activity characteristics and coordination of muscle groups during walking / running and analyze left / right, pre / post test comparisons. Symmetry, timing and curve characteristics are summarized in a detailed report.

Frequency / Fatigue Analysis

The Fast Fourier-based spectral analysis of EMG signals allows for the analysis of local muscular fatigue phenomena in static, submaximal test activities. The decrease in the firing frequency caused by the fatigue is determined by the median, mean frequency, zero crossing and the signal amplitude increase. They thereby quantify the muscular fatigue or resistance in static contraction tasks.
