angular motion

an·gu·lar mo·tion

(anggyū-lăr mōshŭn)
Movement of a body around a fixed point or axis; (e.g., in a body segment around a joint)

angular motion

body motion occurring as the result of one segment pivoting about a fulcrum, e.g. the leg (a multisegmented body part) shows angular motion at the hip, knee and ankle during the swing phase of gait, whilst the leg as a whole undergoes linear (forward) motion

When the timing of the hand path is coordinated with the swing angular motion, the paths coincide.
In addition this phase involves a dramatic deceleration of linear movement with an acceleration of angular motion (Iwamoto, 2011).
Data show that the male group demonstrated decreased angular motion for both hips compared with that of the female group, especially in the transverse axis (Z) of the lumbar spine (15.
NEW YORK, March 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- About MEMS Gyroscopes MEMS gyroscopes are motion sensors that detect and measure the angular motion of an object.
Assessment: The content of the book is concerned largely with the development of an understanding of the effects of Newton's laws of motion with regard to linear and angular motion.
2009) where hip simulators' mechanical structures of all previous known simulators have been analyzed; ten contemporary hip simulator designs on motion profiles (Saikko & Calonius, 2002) have been studied and compared; the base design-prototype (HUT-4) (Saikko, 2005) is determined, wherein the kinematics configuration and mechanical units are applied in simulators of some corporations (EndoLab), developed to meet the requirements of standard ISO 14242 according to which the angular motion profiles differs from the sine wave form, phases of angular displacements FE and IOR differ on n, but FE and AA--about on [pi]/2.
To identify possible alignment events, Sahu's team searched a catalog of 5,000 stars with a high rate of angular motion across the sky and singled out Proxima Centauri.
