Hi All-

I am planning to research the landing accelerations of various high
impact jumping skills in an athletic population. Biometrics LTD
(Model ACL300) has an accelerometer that may be perfect for what I am
looking for. The accelerometer wires to the datalogger, worn on the
back, then the athlete is free to do whatever, where ever. (It
measures acceleration impact-by-impact , its not an "activity
monitor" for daily caloric expenditure). I am inquiring to see if
anyone is familiar with the accelerometer and has an opinion about its
performance. If you have used it in your research, I am very
interested in your experiences with it. If you have used different
accelerometers that allows the subject to be untethered, that would be
great information, too.

Thanks for sharing!
