The Goniometer measures the angle of a joint, such as the knee or elbow. Use it to analyze the range of motion of a limb during different types of physical activity.

Description

The Goniometer can be used to measure the dynamic motion of a limb during different types of physical activity.

  • A set of elastic straps are used to secure the sensor to the subject.
  • The lightweight and flexible joint arms allow the limb to move naturally.
  • Use it with an EKG Sensor to measure muscle activity during limb motion.
  • The sensor can also be detached from the base plate and flexible arms so it can be used in a variety of STEM and engineering activities.
