Lab 3: Angular MeasurementName: Alexander ShchebelskyyStudent Number: 216377038lLab Section: 16Date: 02/02/2021lPurpose:To understand the difference between absolute (segment) and relative (joint) angles inhuman movement: considerations when making the measurements, illustrating themeasurements you made for anyone reading your work, and example situations for takingthese measurementsEquipment:Goniometer (pattern attached), String with Weight, Cell Phone with cameraProcedure:Work with a person in your house, or by yourself using a cell phone with a camera.One person will need to sit at a computer station (use your housemate if they are willing orprop your cell phone so you are in the field of view). Attached is a pattern for a goniometer.Print it out, cut the two parts out and join with a tack in centre so they can spin with respectto each other.1.Use of a computer workstation has been linked to the risk of developing specificmusculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome.The risk is dependent on theposture of the upper limb including wrists, elbows and shoulders.Have a person sit at acomputer workstation.Hang a weight on string in field of view, and take a picture fromthe sagittal plane. Using a goniometer, obtain the flexion/extension angles of the followingeither from the picture if the joint is in the plane of view or directly from the person usingthe computer.
