Always have an inclinometer on you with RehabKit. Measure all frontal-plane movements (e.g., shoulder abduction) and sagittal-plane movements (e.g., lumbar flexion) with exceptional accuracy.
Measure any transverse-plane movements (e.g., cervical rotation in seated) with exceptional accuracy and record multiple values for reference.
