We studied a new technique for assessing dysfunction
in human joints affected by injuries. This
technique measures muscle force throughout a
joint???s range of motion. This is essential for assessing
damage and performing interventions that avoid
overloading the muscle-tendon structure during rehabilitation.
Current assessments measure forceangle
curves using cumbersome and expensive dynamometers.
Our aim was to assess strength curves using the latest technology in the movement analysis
field: a single, wireless, and wearable inertial sensor
that can be used by clinicians as a routine diagnostic
tool for assessing the functional recovery of a joint.
