Industry-leading motion capture suit

The Xsens Link is our flagship product in the Xsens motion capture portfolio. The skin-tight Lycra suit with 17 sensors ensures the best possible data recording. Its low latency of 20 ms makes it ideal for any live application or real-time pipeline.


Trusted by production studios, sports practitioners and specialist healthcare providers across the globe, Xsens Link lets you capture high-impact and highly-dynamic movement – from multiple subjects – away from your computer. Combine the freedom of a 150 m wireless range with the efficiency that comes with reduced clean-up.


Capturing movement

Inertial motion capture works by attaching small, lightweight sensors to the body. The sensors capture movements, create data, and transmit that data to a receiver. A motion capture bundle including hardware and software is required.
