Dear Subscribers,
Many thanks for all the replies to my request
for software to define FHA from 3-D coordinate
data.I hope to confirm a common intersect in
the talus[Lundberg 1989 JBJS],and use this to
optimise the placement of an ankle replacement.
Professor H J Sommer III,Pensylvania State
University,kindly sent a program and subroutines
based on Spoor,C W and Veldpaus F E, J. Biomechanics
13[4]:391-393[1980],and Veldpaus F E,et al. J
Biomechanics,21[1]:45-54[1988].
This will be very useful.
Thanks again
Dave Gidden.
