Can I use accelerometer to measure movement of a robotic arm? Is it possible to measure distance of robotic arm with respect to earth's surface and also change in distance when it moves?

I want to know whether accelerometer can measure distance from earth's surface or not. If yes then how to measure it as these accelerometers gives just tilt and g information. also if not then there is any other solution from freescale which I can use for this purpose?
