  • What is Bone Stimulus?

    To start, it may be easier to define bone stimulus by defining what it isn't. What it's not: Bone Stimulus is not an external workload metric for the lower limb, nor does it have anything to do with g...

  • What is Impact Load?

    What is Impact Load? Impact Load is the sum of the intensities created from every impact measured at the lower limbs during an IMU Step session. Total Impact Load is the sum of the left and right limb...

  • Introduction to Bone Mechanobiology

    This is sourced from the appendix of Bone Stimulus: Summary and Applications, click here to read the full whitepaper. Different types of boneĀ  Our bones consist of two functionally different types. Sp...

  • What is Asymmetry?

    Asymmetry is a comparison of the step intensities between the right and left legs. A difference in the number of steps and/or the intensity of steps taken will result in an asymmetry of load between t...

  • What is the best use case for IMU Step?

    IMU Step was designed to measure & manage lower limb load in running based sports e.g. running, basketball, soccer. It is particularly useful for lower limb injuries since you can precisely measure an...

  • Does IMU Step measure Ground Reaction Forces?

    No, IMeasureU quantifies tibial acceleration. IMU Step sensors measure tibial acceleration which allows our sensors to pick up on subtle changes in lower limb movement and allows you to determine how ...
