BioNomadix Goniometer 110mm Transducer
Part #: BN-GON-110-XDCR, BN-GON-150-XDCR, BN-GON-F-XDCR

110 mm twin-axis goniometer with adapter (BN-ADAPTER-GON) for wireless transmission using dual-channel BioNomadix Goniometry Amplifier (BN-GONIO)

Use the 110 mm BioNomadix Goniometer to simultaneously measure angles in up to two planes of movement. The goniometer has two separate output connectors, one measures flexion/extension, the other radial/ulnar deviation. This twin-axis goniometer will use both transmitter channels to measure both axes simultaneously; when used to measure a single-axis joint such as the knee or elbow, or when measuring a single plane of a twin-axis joint, simply connect one channel, the other input remains available for a second single-axis measurement from another goniometer or torsiometer.

Compatibility


Goniometers have a telescopic endblock that compensates for changes in distance between the two mounting points as the limb moves. The gauge mechanism allows for accurate measurement of polycentric joints. Goniometers attach to the body using TAPE2 medical adhesive tape.

BioNomadix goniometers and torsiometers are ideal for quick and accurate measurement of joint movement in multiple planes. Sensors are extremely robust, lightweight and flexible, and can be comfortably worn undetected under clothing, without hindering the actual movement of the joint. Twin-axis goniometers and single-axis torsiometers provide improved mechanical integrity and electrical performance.

The following list of typical uses is for guidance only…select sensor size such that the sensor is capable of reaching across the joint so that the endblocks can be mounted where least movement occurs between the skin and underlying skeletal structure.

  • BN-GON-110-XDCR – elbow or ankle – flexion/extension, or dorsiflexion/plantarflexion and inversion/eversion
  • BN-GON-150-XDCR – knee or hip – flexion/extension and valgus/varus, or flexion/extension and abudction/adduction
  • BN-TOR-110-XDCR – neck – axial rotation
  • BN-TOR-150-XDCR – forearm – pronation/supination
  • BN-GON-F-XDCR – finger (DIP, PIP, MCP) or toe – flexion/extension
