A Comparison of Smoothing and Filtering Approaches Using Simulated Kinematic Data of Human Movements

Gathered kinematic data usually requires post-processing in order to handle noise. There a three different approaches frequently used: local regression & moving average algorithms, and Butterworth

A note on data smoothing for movement analysis: the relevance of a nonlinear method.

Although the results indicated an overall good fit between the recorded and the calculated acceleration curves, only the nonlinear method led to reliable acceleration curves when aberrant points were present in the position data.

Higher derivative determination in digital filtering: a different cut-off frequency strategy [biomechanics application]

The present study investigated four different filtering and differentiation sequences for the calculation of the higher derivatives from noisy displacement data when using a second order Butterworth

Digital Filtering of Three-Dimensional Lower Extremity Kinematics: an Assessment

This investigation provides new information regarding the influence of digital filtering on lower extremity kinematics and re-emphasizes the importance of selecting the correct cut-off frequency.
