Anatomical reference frame versus planar analysis: implications for the kinematics of the rat hindlimb during locomotion.


Functional recovery is the primary goal of therapeutic intervention in neuromuscular rehabilitation. The purpose of this study was to perform a segmental kinematic analysis using both planar angles computation and a tridimensional (3D) reconstruction of the rat hindlimb, regarding the morphology and the movement of each segment. Seven rats were evaluated… (More)
