Abstract

A biomechanical model was developed which removes an aspect of the technical inaccessibility of current commercially available motion capture systems. The model allows output of kinematics and visual feedback of movement to the patient and clinician. Currently, flexion/extension, internal/external rotation and ab/adduction angles can be displayed for all joints. Shank/thigh to vertical angle and pelvic, tilt, obliquity and rotation can also be displayed.
