I currently working on a project related to measuring the movement of the human knee. I am hoping to measure range of motion and orientation but I want to take things slow and work on it piece by piece to ensure I dont get to far ahead of myself. First off i would just like to ask a few technical hardware questions before i start soldering writing code.
So I have looked at accelerometers and gyroscopes as well as stretch sensors in combination with a tilt sensor for the actual record of movement of the joint.
I would like to work with an arduino pro mini because of the size and portability if possible
- can you attach the accelerometer signal pins to digital pins? or do they only work with analog pins?
- is there a better way to record this type of data
