View Full Version : Joint measurments in monkey upper limb

04-20-2002, 07:19 AM
Dear List members,

I am a PHD student in the department of applied mathematics.
My research is related to the analysis of hand movements in primates.

I would appreciate any advice with respect to the measurments of joints in
the upper limb of a rhesus monkey. The monkey is small and therefore
standart devices for measurments in humans are problematic. The one we
need should be smaller and lighter.

We are interested separately in measurments during the movements in a
horizontal plane, approximately shoulder level, and in the measurments
which will enable us to measure accurately joint movement in multiple
planes. We are looking for more than one size of sensors for measuring the
joints of Wrist, Forearm, Elbow and finger.

If you are familiar about the companies which might produce relevant
goniometers, or you might give any advice, please, let me know.

I will later send the answers to the list for common use.

Thanks for your attention,
