Polhemus, a high-fidelity motion tracking company with more than 50 years of expertise, has expanded to the Orlando region. The Vermont headquartered company opened an office at 1540 International Parkway, Suite 200, Lake Mary, Fla. after decades of providing its technology to the Orlando region’s signature modeling and simulation industry.

With tracking solutions that serve the medical, military, and research and technology markets, Polhemus technology caters to a wide variety of use cases, with endless possibilities, and is a key component in flight and ground simulators, and pilot head tracking on military aircraft. From military training and simulation applications to robotic surgery, to medical simulation, Polhemus technology greatly enhances the capabilities of many high-tech partners on a global scale.

“Orlando training and simulation companies have always embraced our technology.”

John Farr, director of business development for Polhemus

Farr notes Polhemus has many long-time customers located within the Orlando area and throughout Florida.

“Polhemus has the enabling proprietary, and patented technology for the most innovative customers in Orlando,” says John Farr, director of business development for Polhemus. “This spans across medical, commercial and military markets. We wanted to proactively support, and assist our customers in this area, and a sales force in Orlando allows us that capability.”

“Polhemus solutions serve a wide range of industries from healthcare, military, and research and technology markets, and partnering with their expertise will help our County to move forward and provide better opportunities for economic growth, jobs and quality of life,” says Seminole County Chairman Bob Dallari.
