Data glove embedded with 9-axis IMU and force sensing sensors for evaluation of hand function

The proposed data glove system enables hand movement to be tracked in real-time and can be used to obtain useful parameters for physicians, is an efficient tool for evaluating the hand function of patients, and can improve the quality of hand rehabilitation.

Pathophysiological tissue changes associated with repetitive movement: a review of the evidence.

The authors describe a model using albino rats and present evidence related to tissue injury and inflammation due to a highly repetitive reaching task and a conceptual schematic for WMSD development.

Automatic anatomical calibration for IMU-based elbow angle measurement in disturbed magnetic fields

Abstract Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) are increasingly used for human motion analysis. However, two major challenges remain: First, one must know precisely in which orientation the sensor is

Estimating Three-Dimensional Orientation of Human Body Parts by Inertial/Magnetic Sensing

This paper reviews the main sensor fusion and filtering techniques proposed for accurate inertial/magnetic orientation tracking of human body parts and gives useful recipes for their actual implementation.

Estimating Orientation Using Magnetic and Inertial Sensors and Different Sensor Fusion Approaches: Accuracy Assessment in Manual and Locomotion Tasks

Accuracy improved mostly for heading and when the movement exhibited stationary phases, evenly distributed 3D rotations, it occurred in a small volume, and its duration was greater than approximately 20 s.

IMU-Based Joint Angle Measurement for Gait Analysis

A set of new methods for joint angle calculation based on inertial measurement data in the context of human motion analysis are presented, including methods that use only gyroscopes and accelerometers and, therefore, do not rely on a homogeneous magnetic field.

Inertial Measures of Motion for Clinical Biomechanics: Comparative Assessment of Accuracy under Controlled Conditions - Effect of Velocity

Existing AHRS systems can be considered for use in clinical biomechanics under constrained conditions of use while their individual capacity to track absolute motion is relatively consistent, the use of multiple AHRS modules to compute relative motion between rigid bodies needs to be optimized according to the conditions of operation.
