Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

This paper presents a study looking at the angle discrepancy of a 12-camera Vicon MX (Oxford metrics, UK), and a 12-camera Optitrack (NaturalPoint, Corvallis, OR). Coordinate measuring machine are used to characterise marker position. While this is an industrial piece of equipment specific for this function, the Mako Rio acts as a suitable substitute allowing for the joint positions of the RIO to be monitored actually in the same way a subject would be monitored with reflective clusters.
