View Full Version : 3D and 6D gonimeters

06-10-1996, 06:17 PM
Dear All,

I am currently developing a line of research that looks at 3D or 6D
movement of the knee while it is being be perturbed. The experimental
protocol permits goniometers to be used. I have used the Penny Giles 2D
goniometers but I am wanting to measure greater degrees of freedom. I am
also unsure as to the ability of these to measure rapid perturbations, ie.
up to 30Hz.

So I am wanting to find out about the availability of 3D or 6D goniometers
and the users' experience with these instruments. Thanks in advance for
your responses and I will post a summary as usual.
