“We started it first as an internal project to build a new heart rate sensor”, tells Terho Lahtinen, one of the team members behind Movesense. “Our engineers experimented adding a full motion sensing capability to one of the sensor prototypes. We soon realized that this opens a whole new world for sports monitoring and grows far beyond sports and beyond our own competence areas. At the same time we knew that many companies were searching for suitable hardware to commercialize their own sensor concepts. We thought it would be shame to keep such a versatile sensor just for ourselves and, after some internal discussion, decided to make it open and invite everyone interested to innovate and turn their own ideas into practice with Movesense. So, here it is. Use it as best as you can. We’ll do our best to support you!”
