View Full Version : Vicon Upper Limb Model

05-07-2009, 02:41 AM
Dear All,
We are interested in kinematics of the basketball free throw movement.
We found that it's difficult to determine the shoulder joint center in
such throwing movements from external marker positions. At the moment,
we are comparing different models and are looking for the details of the
VICON upper limb model. Vicon refers to the following thesis:

Marray, I.A. (1999). Determining upper limb kinematics and dynamics
during everyday tasks. PhD Thesis. University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Unfortunately, we couldn't find this thesis. Can anyone help us with
this reference or an alternative one which contains the model details?
We would be also very happy about hints to other appropriate models for
such movements.

Best regards
