Development and assessment of techniques that allow inertia measurement units consisting of an accelerometer and a gyroscope to be used for monitoring human joints' movements are presented. A new wavelet packet decomposition technique was developed that denoised the accelerometer signals. Investigations on the use of accelerometers to analyse legs’ movements are described.
