BTS Spa was founded in 1986 as a spin-off of the Bioengineering Center of the Fondazione Don Gnocchi and of the Polytechnic of Milan.
The objective of the start-up was the industrial exploitation of innovative methods for the analysis of movement developed by researchers of the Bioengineering Center.
In 1999 the company was bought by TC Sistema Spa.
In 2004 the company was acquired by 12 employees and 3 external entrepreneurs with a management buy-out operation.
Currently BTS is a world leader in the technologies of movement analysis.

BTS for medicine
Hospitals, Treatment Centers and Rehabilitation Clinics use BTS movement analysis systems to evaluate the best cures for movement dysfunctions and the real efficacy of rehabilitation treatments. Medical personnel obtain by quick, accurate and noninvasive means a detailed quantitative analysis complete with the biomechanical and myoneural parameters of the patient. BTS’s movement analysis systems currently support the clinical treatment of over 10,000 patients per year.
BTS for research
The most prestigious scientific and university institutes use BTS systems for research in the fields of biomechanics, biometrics, diagnostics and motor sciences. BTS technology has been used in the most important space programs, and BTS systems have been installed on the Spacelab and MIR stations. NASA, ESA and CNRS use BTS systems in the parabolic flight programs and for a series of experiments of the International Space Station Program.
BTS for sport
BTS systems are used by several sports medicine organizations with the specific objective of maximizing the performance of athletes, preventing injury and improving the effectiveness of post-traumatic rehabilitation. System systems are also used by prestigious soccer clubs such as Milan for routine evaluations of players.
