View Full Version : inclinometers (tilt sensors)?

02-20-2003, 04:50 AM
I am looking for lightweight inclinometers or tilt sensors that I can mount
on a person's legs during walking for real time feedback of torso, thigh,
shank, and foot angles relative to vertical. It has to be real time (no
post processing analysis) and has to measure segment angles relative to
vertical, not anatomical joint angles. I have found one possible
inclinometer that might work but they seem relatively expensive:

N4 Inclinometers from Rieker Inc.($125.50 each).

Does anyone else know of other possibilities that might be less expensive?
Accuracy to the nearest degree would be acceptable.
