Dear all,
I have some questions regarding marker setup for gait analysis in
prosthetic gait. Is it currently accepted to follow the PiG(Vicon)/Helen
Hayes marker placement, or is it preferred to have additional markers?
We have a Vicon MX system with the possibilities to do our own modelling in
BodyBuilder, which means that we are able to optimize the setup.
Besides the marker setup, does anybody have additional recommendations
regarding prosthetic gait analysis (methods/papers describing methods)?
