I think I've got myself a little confused. Whats the difference between an accelerometer and an inertial sensor? Or are they the same thing?

At first I was thinking the same thing but an accelerometer is a type of inertial sensor. Apparently there are inertial gyroscope sensors as well. Here is a link that talks about the two. So you can get an Inertial Motion Unit (IMU) that has both in the same card.
I'll have a read through that and see if it clears anything up
I know that can be used to measure movement I just wanted to know if these were anything different of simply another name for it
