Hi,

We would like to use our optoelectronic system (Vicon MX) to measure axial
rotation of the knee (tibio-femoral rotation) in young patients with ACL.
For the moment, I think to use the following protocol : functional method
to identify the hip, knee and ankle centres and axis of rotation, and
technical marker set in order to take account for skin artefact.
My wish would be to share experience with someone on the following points :
- What accuracy and repeatability can I expect ?
- Is that protocol the best one for my purpose ?

Many thanks by advance,
