  • A simple external marker system and algorithms for computing lower extremity joint angle motion during level walking were developed and implemented on a computer‐aided video motion analysis system (VICON). The concept of embedded axes and Euler rotation angles was used to define the three‐dimensional joint angle motion based on a set of body surface markers. Gait analysis was peformed on 40 normal young adults three times on three different test days at least 1 Week apart using the marker… CONTINUE READING
