A simple, inexpensive, and accurate way to measure relative segmental rotations resulting from torsional loadings locally is described. To measure these rotations, we fabricated a planar spatial linkage (open-loop kinematic chain) requiring only one rotational displacement transducer. This paper describes this device, defines its kinematics, and examines its accuracy.
