View Full Version : scapulae movements

02-15-2006, 02:45 AM
Dear colleagues:

We are interested in quantifying the movements of the scapulae in balistic
movements (volleyball spike). We are concerned about the movements artifacts
that may happend due to differences of the skin markers (positioned in the
back) with respect to the bone (scapulae itself). Has anyone quantified this
kind of error? What are the best approaches to that? We have tried several
sources in the literature but with no success. Therefore, any help or
comment will be welcome.
Thank you all in advance.
