Hi folks. We are in the midst of starting a new project investigating joint
torques during sit to stand in patients with neuromuscular disease using
Vicon. We are challenged with the fact that trunk flexion often obscures
ASIS markers during this task, especially in the more robust individuals.
we are hoping that someone out there has a lower extremity vicon body
builder model utilizing a marker on greater trochanter that they would be
willing to share before we go writing new code. Of course they would be
properly acknowledged in future publications. Any other suggestions on
strategies to deal with the marker obstruction in this task would be helpful
as well.

thanks
