This question by Nancy Denniston seems suitable for a public discussion
on Biomch-L. If you have specific knowledge or opinion on this topic,
please send your reply publicly to Biomch-L@nic.surfnet.nl so that
further discussion can take place.

You may, of course, also reply privately to Nancy and she may then
include your reply in a general summary of responses.

I would be specifically interested in hearing about research which
compares the biomechanical variables (joint angles, joint moments)
between various marker sets. This would give some indication of how
important the choice of marker set is. There is software which can be
configured for various marker sets (e.g. Kintrak, Visual3D) so this may
have been studied.

It would also be good to hear from the equipment vendors and/or software
