Inclinometers, Digital

Definition : Inclinometers designed for automated measuring of the angle of displacement (known as the range of motion or ROM) of a joint by means of sensors and a central electronic unit (known as digital inclinometers). These inclinometers typically consist of a central unit that processes, displays, and records the information and wired or wireless sensors which provide a linear electronic output relative to the measured angle. Typically the inclinometer sensors are placed against the bone and never leave contact with the patient during the movement of the joint. Inclinometers may be used in pairs when the motion to be evaluated has two joint components (e.g., spinal movements). Digital inclinometers are usually capable of measurement from very small to large ROM. Digital inclinometers are used by rheumatologists and physical therapists to assess joint function and to diagnose and treat locomotor system diseases; they can be included as a component of gait and joint laxity analyzers., Inclinometers, and especially digital inclinometers, have replaced goniometer in many applications to obtain more accurate measurements.
