View Full Version : bone pins and marker sets

07-11-2000, 02:33 AM

The use of intracortical (bone) pins have been used extensively in human
motion capture research. Several authors have described reflective marker
sets mounted on (in a triad or quad formation) of a Steinmen or Hoffman
bone pin (see figure 1 in Ramsey and Wretenberg, Clinical Biomechanics,
14:595-611, 1999). Does anyone know whether the authors of these studies
manufactured these markers themselves or know of a vendor/supplier of such

other references for bone pin usage:
Levens et al: JBJS, 30A:859-72, 1948
Reinschmidt et al: Gait and Posture, 6:98-109, 1997.
Lafortune and Cavanagh: JOB, 25:347-57, 1992.
