Verisense IMU Kit

Development Kits

Shimmer’s newest platform offering, Verisense IMU, facilitates long term, remote capture of motion signals to enable use for a variety of applications that require long term motion monitoring. Verisense provides raw data 6 DoF inertial sensing via Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

With raw 6 DoF inertial sensing data via 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope, Verisense IMU can be used for many applications such as activity and sleep monitoring, gait parameters, Parkinson’s tremor classification, joint angle calculation and rehab exercise count.

Multiple sensors can be used on a single participant. Depending on the body location and number of sensors, a wide variety of additional metrics can be generated. Flexible, modular design allows for monitoring in various locations beyond the wrist.

Before Purchasing:


Supporting Software – Shimmer provides integration options that allow users to develop functions such as programming and data retrieval themselves. We do not have supporting software currently that allows for such functions.

    • Via C# BLE API and MATLAB Examples

      The Verisense C# BLE API is designed to allow for easy integration of the Verisense suite of sensors onto 3rd party software platforms. Similarly, the MATLAB examples provided helps support integration of Verisense into MATLAB.

      Example code is provided to guide developers on tasks such as sensor configuration, streaming live data, retrieving logged data and parsing the data. The Verisense C# BLE API allows development across the primary operating systems, and has been tested on Android 10, iOS 15 and Windows 10. The MATLAB examples have been tested on MATLAB 12 using Windows.

      Full Details on the Verisense C# BLE API and access to examples can be found on GitHub, see here.

      MATLAB Examples can also be found on GitHub, see here.

    • Via Bluetooth Commands

      The Verisense Sensor communicates via Bluetooth 5. For users looking to push Verisense data directly onto their own platforms, we have developed documentation detailing how to connect data from the Verisense Sensor directly onto external, third-party platforms using Bluetooth enabling the ability to develop their own communication protocols.
