Hi,

I am looking into compression of the spine under loading whilst static,
leading to loading in trampolining conditions, for my MSc dissertation at
Loughborough University. I plan to use Vicon to measure this compression.
Has anyone done anything like this before? Any advice, such as how many
markers to use, where to place them and what to affix them with to minimise
movement on the skin will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
