This paper focuses on the development of a mobile measurement device to evaluate the bending and flexion of a Badminton player’s hand. Badminton can be classified as a fast racket based sports. A human eyes alone is not capable of capturing all these movements. The usage of high processing optometric system is expensive and large in size. Thus, this paper proposes development of wearable measurement device to analyse badminton player’s movements. This project involves the designing of a wearable sensor system that measure the players grasping action. A number of flex sensors is attached to a glove to acquire readings from the movement of the players hand and fingers. Experiments were conducted to determine the feasibility of each sensor towards the design of the new measurement device. The experiment results exhibit the capabilities of the bend sensors to provide accurate information regarding hand and finger movement activity.
