This Quick, Easy and Accurate Gyroscope System...
The Motus Movement Monitor is a new concept in measuring movement disorders that utilizes a unique miniature solid state gyroscope (not gravity sensitive accelerometers).
It has been successfully used to quantify: tremor (resting, posture, kinetic), rapid pronation/supination of the hand, arm swing, lateral truncal sway, leg stride, spasticity (pendulum drop test), dyskinesia and alternating dystonia.
The Motus gyros sense only rotational motion and are ideal for quantifying human movement since skeletal joints produce rotational motion. It is the only sensor that can directly measure this.
The Motus System employs custom software and an easily used Windows operating system. The sensor signal is processed by a portable computer-based system and data is presented on screen showing a real time strip chart, fast Fourier transform plot and other selected parameters including displacement and peak frequency. It is being used by neurologists, neurosurgeons, and research scientists both in the United States and internationally.
