  • spring goniometers

    Hello Bio-Netters,

    I have heard, but never seen, about a class of goniometers that
    look like small springs. I have been told that you can attach them
    across a joint and measure roughly the motions in three planes across
    that joint. Is this true or just an exageration of some simpler device?
    Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? If someone has, I would love to
    know who makes them and any way i can contact them. I heard they came
    from England. We are looking for a non-restrictive, simple device to
    measure motions in the wrist of stroke patients. Any ideas would be
    greatly apreciated.

    Again as usual, if there is sufficient reponse I would be glad to post
    all the information.

    Thank you for your time,
