BLUE TRIDENT

The most powerful inertial sensor in its class, powered by Vicon

DOWNLOAD FACT SHEET

Engineered to capture the highest quality data

Higher fidelity measurement, three times faster data download speed, and real-time analysis – in the field and in water – Vicon’s Blue Trident is our newest life sciences wearable.

The next generation of our market-leading IMU, Blue Trident is lightweight, easy to use, flexible and reliable.

From elite to grassroots sports, the improved, form-fitting sensor can capture the highest load activities and provide immediate real-time analysis in the field. It also benefits from being fully waterproof (IP68), making it suitable for all-weather capture, underwater treadmills and swimming.

APPLICATIONS

Sports Performance and Biomechanics

Vicon’s unbeatable combination of inertial sensing and optical motion capture is ideally suited to sports. Our customers are using Vicon for applications of all kinds – we’ve captured everything from football to swimming, tennis to golf, from athletics to basketball, as well as baseball, cricket, long jump, and weightlifting. You name it; we’ve done it.

Gait analysis, neuroscience and motor control

We offer the most advanced, customisable, end-to-end mocap solution, covering the entire pipeline – without relying on third party software – while also providing true flexibility through integration plugins for other platforms.

“Many movements made at high speed or involving the highest peak forces, such as changes of direction, sudden decelerations, landing and even sprinting, can lead to sensor clipping and loss of data. Having high g capability with the new sensor allows us to quantify and thereby gain a better understanding of these movements, improving insight into the preparation required for our athletes.”

Andrew Gray
High Performance Manager, Cronulla Sharks

“We are investigating the suitability of Vicon’s next generation sensors for a range of sports applications from cricket illegal action detection to injury prevention in junior cricket fast bowlers, specifically for monitoring shoulder, trunk and pelvis rotations. We are also evaluating how sports like AFL and soccer might adopt and use this higher specification sensor. What we have seen so far is very exciting.”

Jacqueline Alderson
Assistant Professor, University of Western Australia

“I believe that real time feedback must become the new normal as human sensor technology continues to evolve. Being able to understand performance as it happens, and subsequently make changes throughout a session if required, significantly upgrades our ability to care for our athletes.”

What’s new

  • High G sensor

    Dual-g sensor: 16g combined with the highest g sensor on the market at 200g.

    View Image
  • Ergonomics

    Better form factor: more ergonomic, 25% smaller and lighter.

    View Image
  • Waterproof

    IP68 rated and tested for submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes – good for all-weather capture, underwater treadmills, swimming.

    Because we love to go above and beyond, we’ve also tested the sensor at depths far exceeding this.  We’ve used Blue Trident when submersed at depths of up to three metres for one hour.

    View Image
  • Performance

    Better measurement performance and reliability with the dual sensors, so saturation drop off is avoided and users can capture even the highest peaks of activity – very useful for high-load activities such as cricket.

    View Image
  • Download speed

    Higher speed download compared to predecessor – three times quicker data download speed.

    View Image
  • Connectivity

    Up to 12-hour battery life depending on sensor usage and Bluetooth 5 for better connectivity and range.
