View Full Version : Relative movements of the trunk

12-03-2006, 11:49 AM
Hello all,

My colleagues and I are currently undertaking a research project and
want to describe movements of the trunk with respect to the pelvis.

Would anyone be able to enlighten us as to how we could describe the
local coordinate system of the body segment with respect to the global
coordinate system (room) and also with other local coordinate system
of the other segments of the body (i.e. defining relative motions
between segments of the body)?
