DataLITE Wireless Torsiometer for Forearm Rotations

Measure Rotation in a Single-Axis

Our Torsiometers are designed to adapt to various joint sizes, ensuring optimal placement for accurate measurements. They can be used across different population groups, from adults to pediatrics, providing flexibility and versatility in your studies or practice. And with a life expectancy of 600,000 cycles, you can rely on their longevity, maximizing your return on investment.

Choose from wireless or wired options according to your needs. The wireless Torsiometers come equipped with a wireless transmitter that offers you total freedom of movement within a 30m range, freeing you from the constraints of wired connections and enabling more natural, real-world study conditions.

Harness the potential of our Torsiometers in a multitude of applications, including:

  • Biomechanics: Enhance your understanding of body movements and improve your designs or interventions.
  • Ergonomics: Optimize work environments for comfort and efficiency, minimizing the risk of strain or injury.
  • Clinical & Medical Settings: Improve patient assessments and treatment strategies with accurate movement data.
  • Sports Science: Refine athletes' techniques and postures to maximize performance and prevent injuries.
  • Gait Analysis: Gain detailed insights into walking patterns to help improve mobility and rehabilitation outcomes.
  • And Many More: Torsiometers find wide-ranging applications anywhere that requires understanding and quantifying joint movement, including research labs, industries designing ergonomic products, animation studios for motion capture, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Torsiometer is a device designed to measure rotations in one plane, such as forearm pronation/supination or neck axial rotation.

Both types of Torsiometers function the same way. The main difference is that the wireless Torsiometer contains a transmitter that allows for a range of movement up to 30m from its interface, offering greater freedom of movement.

Torsiometers are widely used in various fields, including Biomechanics, Ergonomics, Gait Analysis, Sports Science, and Clinical & Medical Settings, among others.

The Torsiometer is designed to function typically for 600,000 cycles. This was determined through life test results collected by cycling the sensors through movements that would happen during everyday use.

Yes, our Torsiometers are designed to be lightweight and flexible, so they can be comfortably worn under clothing without hindering movement.

The wireless Torsiometer uses a rechargeable Li-Ion Polymer battery, which can last up to 12 hours.

The Torsiometer has an accuracy of ± 2º measured over a range of ± 90º.

We provide thorough customer service and a two-year warranty for our products.
