Abstract

The application of a video-based motion analysis system for goniometry of finger joints during measurement of the fingertip motion area has been assessed. The results indicate that the motion analysis system is reliable for angular measurements of finger joints that are comparable with those obtained by conventional goniometer. The advantages of using the motion analysis system is that it can record and show the changes in angle of all finger joints continuously during finger motion.
