I am developing a markerless gait analysis system using image processing
techniques to locate the joint centres for tracking. I am hoping to achieve
this by fitting a simplified model of the leg (literally just four lines in
the 2D plane) to the actual footage of the patient's leg. I have managed to
successfully pick out the patient from the background of the film clips but
I am having trouble actually fitting the model to the footage without manual
intervention. I was wondering if anyone has tried this technique before and
how they managed this particular problem. I am really looking for source
code or algorithms at this stage as I have read several papers on the

Thanks to all for any help you can give,
