Orientation data. where does it come from?

Hi, all

I am working on moving a robotic arm with the orientation data. It works fine, but I need to write a report about it. The problem is that the orientation data is not raw data from a sensor, right?.
I think it is a mixed between magnetometer data and some other stuff. So, I would like to know more about it, until now, I couldn't find information.
What is the math, or algorithm used in the Myo armband to obtain the orientation data??

Thanks.
