Abstract: The proposal of this project was the development of a more objective system to evaluate spasticity, dysfunction often presented by spinal cord injured people. As result, it will be possible to follow patient’s progress in moments before and after any treatment, drawing comparisons through the acquired data. One accelerometer was added to the original pendulum test, providing redundant and alternative signal to the electrogoniometer, even in critical situations. Also, tests were performed in patients during treatments, what confirmed the feasibility of the present system in this method of evaluation.
