Angles

Angles

Measuring the way different parts of the body are moving relative to each other is extremely useful for movement, kinematics and gait studies. Measuring joint angle is one common way of assessing this movement.

Signal Overview

Joint angle is most simply measured using a goniometer, a device that is secured to both sides of a joint with a flexible portion that moves with it. A range of different size and shape devices are available to work with the many different types of joints in the body.

Joint angle measurements can be a useful tool for understanding movement in scenarios from simple gym exercises up to complex actions in a wide variety of sports.

Joint angle is also often measured in conjunction with other signals, such as EMG, or in response to electrical stimuli  to get even more information about movement or reflexes.

All your Angles analysis in one place

LabChart software is designed specifically for life science data and provides up to 32 channels for data display and analysis options that are powerful and easy to use. With auto-recognition of ADI and LabChart Compatible hardware, multi-window views, one touch recording, simultaneous recording from multiple devices, specialized preconfigured settings, easy sharing options and an interface that can be customized to show only the features you want to use.

Calibrating a goniometer

Calibrating a goniometer using LabChart’s Unit Conversion feature is important to get accurate results. Only 2 known angle data points are needed for calibration. Any flat surface can be used as one and 90 degree angles are easy enough to find as a second point.
