A digital goniometer is a bipolar joint angle sensor for single degree of freedom joints such as the knee or elbow, which is suitable for use in humans or in large animals. The angle is determined by the amount of light passing through a pair of optic fibers running along the cantilever, and a light sensor is contained in one of the enclosures. A mounting kit is supplied, which offers convenient, easy to use, one size fits many, Velcro straps and double sided adhesive tape.
The motorized goniometer can be connected directly to a PowerLab Pod port or via a Pod Expander.
The electrogoniometer can be used with a Tendon Hammer for tendon jerk experiments.
