Abstract


The present article describes the creation and operation of a device for biomechanical analysis, which is portable, precise, non-invasive, and which allows us to autonomously obtain the position, orientation and measurement of the articular amplitude of two body segments connected by a joint. The above is carried out with data obtained from a number of inertial and magnetic microsensors. The device, through the application of a series of methods, allows the recording of the movements made by a person while they go about their daily activities without the need of including a computing system that operates it. This can be done in real time or delayed-mode, and for long periods of time, depending on the battery charge of the device. 

Keywords
