Abstract : This program addresses the development of a microminiature acceleration recorder for monitoring motions in humor subjects. For the Phase I development, miniature components and low power CMUS technology were used to implement the recorder element. This was interfaced with an IBM-PC compatible system for data archive, analysis and presentation. The device was mounted to the wrist of a full-size human phantom and successfully recorded low level impacts. Miniaturized Microprocessor Based Accelerometer Recorder; RA 3.
