Polhemus Brings Micro Sensor Motion Tracking to Healthcare Simulation
Do you believe that one day we will be able to learn from masters simply by copying their hand motions in real-time VR? Polhemus has made this reality one step closer with advanced motion capturing with micro sensors. Are you building a medical simulator? Consider the benefits that Polhemus motion tracking could bring your product:
Developed for a recently released VR cardiac catheterization training simulator, Polhemus’ MicroSensor 1.8 was up to the task of tracking Julian Gray’s amazing finger work. With applications in biomechanics, rehabilitation, virtual reality and more, the MicroSensor 1.8 is extending Polhemus’ leadership in high fidelity motion tracking.
Hand and finger tracking is achieved in real time, with Polhemus Micro Sensors 1.8. Polhemus motion tracking is high fidelity and robust, tracking the quick fingers of a skilled guitarist. Tiny, lightweight sensors attach easily with custom Micro Mounts. Using our LIBERTY tracking system, the complex finger and hand motions are easily tracked at an update rate of 240 Hz per sensor, with virtually no latency, and using no cameras.
The possibilities for Polhemus motion tracking in medical simulation are clear!
