In order to examine the tracking performance of the joint angle of the upper limbs, the reference value calculated after the measurement of the angular displacements of the examinee's shoulder and elbow and the angular displacement output from the encoder after the upper limbs rehabilitation exercises are measured.
3-5] Standard value (SV) is the mean difference between the bilateral facet joint angle (FJA) measurements.
Image processing based measurement is used to measure the relationship between MCP joint angles and PIP joint angle either in the situation of extension or flexion condition.

A knee joint angle is calculated as integral of difference between angular velocities measured from two gyroscopes are attached on the adjacent segment i.
Hip joint angle refers to the included angle between the femur and ipsilateral trunk.
In this study, we defined ankle joint angle at 0[degrees] (dorsiflexion 0[degrees]) when the foot plate was perpendicular to the ground and measured the ankle joint angle as the rotation angle of the foot plate; we defined dorsiflexion as positive.
The forward kinematic relationships are used in a structured manner to determine the position of the essential end effector points via analysing the links and joint angle constraints of [[theta].
The joint angle and joint torque data combined suggest that muscular weakness is present across all three joints and is likely the fundamental source of altered gait patterns in PAD.
where [tau] is the driving torque, [THETA] is the joint angle, and [psi] = [[C, [sigma], m, n, h].
