Abstract

Accurate measurement and analysis of joints' range of movement (ROM) are important for assessing joint related health conditions and are valuable to clinicians for diagnostic and rehabilitation purposes. As an alternative to using the camera-based methods which are restrictive and expensive, and the electro-goniometers which are not sufficiently effective in some scenarios, researchers are developing the use of microelectromechanical devices such as accelerometers for measuring human joints movement. This paper presents the development of an accelerometer based system to measure movement angle, velocity, acceleration and displacement for the knee.
