Consensys EMG Development Kits

The Shimmer3 Consensys EMG Development Kits is one of Shimmer's newest Developments Kits based on our exciting new Consensys Hardware and Software. Now available for one to fifteen Shimmer3 EMG sensors, depending on the number of devices you require. Consensys is designed for:

  • Adaptive human data collection.
  • Rapid design and prototyping of wireless solutions.
  • Rapid semi-automated data collection.
  • Synchronization of multiple Shimmer devices.
  • Access to raw and clinically validated data.

The Shimmer3 Consensys EMG Development Kit can be utilized to monitor (non-invasive) surface EMG, providing a representation of the muscle activity at the measurement site. The EMG Development Kit can also be utilized to monitor ECG (Electrocardiogram), recording the pathway of electrical impulses through the heart muscle. Combined with Shimmer’s integrated altimeter and 9DoF inertial sensor platform, greater context can be given to the wearer’s activity and condition in real-time. 

Consensys Software

Our Consensys software application is available in two versions, ConsensysPRO and ConsensysBASIC. ConsensysBASIC is free to all Shimmer users, while a single license for ConsensysPRO is availabe for €199. An annual license can be purchased from our e store here.

The features of ConsensyPRO and ConsensysBASIC are outlined below.

Both logging data to your Shimmer's SD card and streaming via Bluetooth are now supported by Consensys. Shimmer firmware is available open source on Github.

Functional Base

The Consensys hardware Base works with the Shimmer3 Kinematic and Biophysical sensors including ECG, EMG, Galvanic Skin Response, Optical Pulse and Heart Rate and which boast unrivalled performance levels and processing power. In developing the Consensys Hardware Base, we focused on adding value to your data collection process. The Base is available in both 6 Shimmer and 15 Shimmer configurations, for the simultaneous management of all your Shimmer Sensors.
