This team aimed to create the optimal diagnostic tool to quantify spasticity in a clinical setting by measuring the three factors that contribute to spasticity: the spastic limb’s range of motion, velocity of motion, and resistive force when rotated about a joint at a relatively constant velocity by a clinician. The spasticity quantification device contains an accelerometer and force transducer contained within a chassis that is strapped to a patient’’s limb to measure these factors as the limb is rotated about the joint.
