In this paper, we present a method for determining the mobility of the spinal column using a network of sensors. The sensors consist of accelerometers and gyroscopes, and mutual communication is accomplished using a I2C bus. The main sensor node collects data from all the sensors and sends them to a computer using Bluetooth communication. The collected data is then filtered and converted to the values of the angles that are of interest to quantify the movement. The experimental part of this work method is applied to determine the range of motion of patients in the Clinical Center in Kragujevac.
