The MotusPro is a high-tech wearable baseball sensor that makes it possible to track a whole variety of biomechanical parameters that are associated with the sport of baseball.

The system comprises a number of motion sensors that can be comfortably inserted into iron-on pockets that can be placed on shirts, gloves and shoes. The sensor measure speeds and hitting motions while tracking various other movement patterns. The system is capable of storing game data on on-board storage before sharing it via Bluetooth to an iOS app interface, where users can delve into their performance.

Baseball is a sport that demands a number of unique and straining body movements. Assessing and understanding these movements allows for the attainment of improved performances on the field of play, while minimizing injuries -- this is exactly what the MotusPro allows.
