Hello,
We are currently attempting to model the head/neck complex during head
extension; however, there seems to be some controversy of where the
"head" actually rotates about. We know that there is a contribution of
all the cervical vertebra; however, modeling of this becomes very
complex. Therefore, does anyone know of any site can be "simply" used
(but valid) as the axis of rotation?

Additionally, does anyone have the radius of gyration value for this
"segment?"

Thanks, SEAN
