This paper focuses on evaluating and testing the usage of Bluetooth communication in a mobile measuring device to evaluate the flexion and extension of an athlete’s hand. This mobile measuring device is targeted for athlete that plays racket based sports, like Badminton which is a game that needs fast actions. For this sole reason human eyes are not enough to analyse the fast movement and an additional equipment is needed. This is where a solution is proposed, usage of a mobile measuring device that can capture the activities from the player’s hand. To maintain the mobility of the measuring device, wireless connection to a personal computer is used. The Bluetooth communication technology is used to send the data obtained from the player to a personal computer for further processing. The data will be later analysed by the coach or the player themselves to evaluate information on their performance. To evaluate the stability and feasibility of the develop communication protocol, experiments were conducted to measure the flexion of the player’s hand and send it through Bluetooth communication to a base station. The experiments result exhibits the capabilities of the Bluetooth communication in providing a wireless serial link between the transmitter and receiver for data transmission.
