Hello all,

I am a research assistant at the Centre for Human Movement Analysis in
Victoria, BC. We are interested in using the Vicon Motion software (6
camera set-up) to analyze hand motion, from individual finger movement
upto the shoulder.

While dealing with this system, I have come to realize that I would
require a .mod, .mkr and .mp files for analysing data collected (these
are the model, marker and parameter files). Vicon has supplied us with
start up files that only give the angles of the respective markers.
However, we are interested in modifying these files to obtain useful
kinematic data, i.e. by using algorithms like the plug in gait which
considers the size of markers used and subject measurements to find
the exact joint centres, etc.

We would be very grateful if anyone could supply us with these files
if they are working on the same and would gladly acknowledge their
input for any publishings. We would also welcome any help in writing
out own model and parameter files based on algorithms that may be
found in other publications.

I would like to thank everyone in advance for all their input,
