Startup making strides in biomechanical tracking with applications in rehab and virtual reality
Yost Labs, leader in advanced inertial motion tracking, is proud to be recognized by the National Council of Entrepreneurial Tech Transfer (NCET2) as one of the Best University Startups of 2017.
Paul Yost, Assistant Professor at Shawnee State University, founded Yost Labs to apply academic-style research and computer science and engineering approaches to real-world problems. Now as Chief Technology Officer of Yost Labs, Yost says, “My goal is to continue to be a part of the magic of developing innovative engineering solutions for difficult problems.”
With this philosophy as their foundation, Yost Labs has developed solutions for biomechanical tracking that are opening new doors in the areas of rehab and virtual reality. By calculating human joint angles from body worn sensors, it is possible to monitor outpatient physical therapy or even gamify rehab. Their research has also yielded advancements in full body motion capture applicable to many projects in the virtual reality and telepresence markets.
With support from funding partners including Ohio Third Frontier and TechGROWTH Ohio, Yost Labs is one of the fastest growing tech companies in the state.
