Abstract

Capacitive stretch sensors are used to measure knee, hip and trunk angles. These sensors are small, light weight and, at present, externally mounted on the body. Initial evaluations indicate that angle measurements can be obtained when appropriate mounting and signal processing techniques are used. Further evaluation is needed to improve these techniques and ensure repeated accuracy of the angle measurements. These stretch sensors can be a valuable tool in the development and use of feedback controllers of posture and gait effected by Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation (FNS).
