Abstract: In many medical applications, especially the orthopaedic setting, ambulatory, monitoring of human joint angles could be of substantial value to improving rehabilitation strategies and unravelling the pathomechanics of many degenerative joint diseases (e.g. knee osteoarthritis). With the ageing of the population and increasing incidence of obesity, the prevalence of degenerative joint diseases is increasing (e.g. knee osteoarthritis is the single most common cause of pain and disability in middle-aged and older adults. As an example, In case of osteoarthritis rehabilitation, it is critical to monitor the loading of the affected joint during activities of daily living (ADL). These measurements allow monitoring of daily activity patterns, joint angles and walking patterns, which could be of use in adjusting the applied therapy depending on the results measured.
