Matlab MOtion data elaboration TOolbox for NeuroMusculoSkeletal applications (MOtoNMS) is a a freely available toolbox that aims at providing a complete tool for post-processing of movement data for their use in neuromusculoskeletal software. MOtoNMS has been design to be flexible and highly configurable, to satisfy the requests of different research groups.
Users can easily setup their own laboratory and processing procedures, without constraints in instruments, software, protocols, and methodologies, everything without change in the MATLAB code.
MOtoNMS also improves the data organization, providing a clear structure of input data and automatically generating output directories.

MOtoNMS is free software. See the file license for copying conditions.

Latest Version

Details of the latest version can be found on the SimTK project page:


A PDF version of MOtoNMS User Manual is included with this release and can be downloaded from The most up-to-date documentation is also provided in the GitHub Project Pages available at


Just unzip the distribution and start working with MATLAB. This release includes four directories:

  • src: MOtoNMS source code
  • SetupFiles: Setup files describing laboratories configuration, EMG and marker protocols, etc.
  • Licenses: Licenses for the tools used in MOtoNMS that are developed by other authors
  • TestData: Example datasets from four different laboratories

The TestData package is also available at
