Hello,

I am preparing to complete a complete 3-dimensional kinematic and kinetic
analysis of bowling in cricket. I believe that there is already a
biomechanical group attempting to set up a complete standardised
description of 3D joint motion in the human body. Could you please inform
me how to contact this group. Is there a website? (I am already aware of
the International Shoulder Group). I am also having some difficulty
choosing an appropriate rigid body trunk model - some researchers use one
segment others two or more. For the latter case, how to obtain the
intertial properties?

I have also heard that there is already published a framework of the
standardisation of joint descriptions in the Journal of Biomechanics. Can
someone please provide me with this reference. Other relevant references
would also be appreciated.

Thank you.
