[40] examined the effects of 12 weeks of TC exercises on knee proprioception in individuals with knee using an electrogoniometer at angles of 30[degrees], 45[degrees], and 60[degrees].
Elbow and carpus joints in flexed and extended positions from 10 orthopedically normal wings of 6 adult wild barred owls (Strix varia) were evaluated with the animals under general anesthesia using a modified universal plastic goniometer and an electrogoniometer. These measurements were compared to those obtained using radiographic assessment.
After the familiarization period, in starting on another day, the different intensities were applied in random order on different days, as follows: i) each repetition cycle lasted about 3 s, with 1.5 s for the concentric phase and 1.5 s for the eccentric phase, controlled by a metronome; ii) motion knee angle between 90 and 180 degrees, controlled by an electrogoniometer (15) (EMG system, Brazil).
Hip passive ROM was assessed bilaterally with the use of a biaxial electrogoniometer (model SG110/A, Biometrics, Gwent, UK), according to protocol by Clippinger.
Digital force gauges and pinch gauges were used to assess manual hand forces during destemming, and a CyberGlove electrogoniometer glove (http://www.cyberglovesystems.com/) was used to assess dynamics and repetitive motion of the hand and fingers in trimming.
The ankle joint angle was read from an electrogoniometer (Delsys, Boston, MA) which measured the affected-side ankle angle, and the affected-side knee joint angle was read from the AG onboard joint angle sensor.
The two end blocks of the ankle electrogoniometer (SG110A, Biometrics Ltd., Newport, UK) were attached to the lower leg and shoe using skin-friendly double sided adhesive tape according to the manufacturer's instructions (see Figure 1).
developed a lumbar-motion monitoring device that uses a three-axis electrogoniometer [20].
An electrogoniometer (EMG System from Brazil Inc, Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil) was used, which was coupled to an analog converter synchronized with the electromyography.
Moreover, the cost of our designed MGR is about US$66, a very low figure compared to a flexible electrogoniometer [31] and MAS [32].
[21] measured the motion and amplitudes obtained during a manipulation known as the "composite levers technique" on two cervical levels (C3 and C5) using a three-dimensional electrogoniometer. The manipulation was operated by a single practitioner on 14 asymptomatic volunteers.
