Abstract : The invention relates to electrogoniometers and more particularly to electrongoniometers for measuring and/or recording the degree of rotation of the forearm. The object of this invention is to provide an instrument whereby the rotation of the forearm can be measured and recorded during activity; that is to say, without unduly restricting the other activities of the person subjected to the measurement. By keeping restriction of normal body activities to a minimum, the normal or unconscious forearm rotation accompanying ordinary activities as opposed to the conscious extreme rotation of the forearm under experimental conditions, can be more readily measured.
