About this course

As a foundation for lower limb monitoring and for the rest of the academy, let’s start off with an in-depth overview of what an inertial sensor is. Jaime will explain basic concepts such as placement, components, and g calculations while referring to Dr. Clint Hansen for more detailed demonstrations. This lesson takes segments from our webinar An Introduction to Inertial Measurement Units: Applications for Human Movement

What You'll Learn

In this lesson you will learn:

  • What components typically make up an inertial sensor
  • How accelerometers detect movement
  • How changes in sensor frequency and sensitivity will affect data
  • How to determine where to place a sensor
