IMU Step is a lower limb load monitoring tool that delivers external & internal workload metrics to running sports athletes. It enables precise, actionable insights captured via small, synchronized, high-frequency sensors supported with beautiful mobile and desktop apps.
Identify and quantify the impact of every step. Precisely measure load and intensity on each limb, indoors and out.
Sync sensors seamlessly with your mobile app to accurately measure left and right limb load. Identify changes in asymmetry and reduce risk of injury.
Actionable, accessible insights via cloud based dashboards. Empower your medical, rehab and performance teams to make better decisions from anywhere.
Healthy teams win championships. Reduce risk of injury and reinjury by monitoring and measuring load at the source.
Used by winning teams
and athletes worldwide
For running-based sports like Basketball, Soccer and American Football, over 40% of non-contact injuries are sustained on the lower limb. IMU Step monitors lower limb load for a smarter Return-to-Play.
IMU STEP ASYMMETRY
Measure lower limb load asymmetry
Precisely monitor and view loading asymmetries between the left and right legs within individual drills and across multiple sessions.
IMU STEP INTENSITY
Quantify the intensity of every step
Identify and characterize the intensity of every step. Monitor high, medium and low impact loads to precisely define the musculoskeletal load of every workout.
Measure. Motion. Anywhere.
“IMU Step brings about a new understanding of injury biomechanics as we move outside of the lab and obtain accurate measurements in the real world.”
Dr. Thor Besier, co-founder and chief scientist at IMeasureU
What our customers say about IMU
“Wearable devices, like the IMU sensors, allow the collection of more ecological valid data as we can collect high frequency biomechanics data in the wild i.e. the athlete or patient’s natural environment.”Professor Irene DavisHarvard Medical School & Director of Spaulding National Running Clinic, USA
“I use IMU Step to precisely track & manage the load of every step players take from the time they are injured to their return to play.”Dr. David MartinPhiladelphia 76ers
“With IMU we were able to quantify the impact of every step of over 200 runners in the Boston Marathon and look at changes from fatigue throughout the race. We've simply never been able to collect this type of data outside of a lab before.”Professor Irene DavisHarvard Medical School & Director of Spaulding National Running Clinic, USA
“When we went through the last 8 sessions up to Sunday’s session and our QB noticed the improved symmetry, you should have seen his reaction. It was incredible to see an athlete immediately understand what it meant, which for him, was that much closer to being back on the field.”Max R. Paquette, PhDAssociate Professor | Biomechanics Exercise, Sport and Movement Sciences School of Health Studies
