A potentiometer-based electro-goniometer has been developed to measure knee angle of normal healthy individuals (5),who were instructed to walk slow, normal and brisk for walking distance of 17 m. Data acquisition and analysis on acquired datawere done using LabVIEW. For individuals with different physical parameters, it was found that frequency (steps/min) remains the same irrespective of varying velocities. Step length reduces as individuals walk without shoes.
