Subject: Cinematographic analysis to predict EMG readings

Does anyone know of any work done in this field or any 3 dimensional
biomechanics software packages that can be used with minimal equipment
(such as a decent PC with a video input board)? I am looking to develop
a piece of software that will integrate two views of an action into a
cohesive 3 dimensional model of the action, but would like to take a look
at existing software of this type, if it is available. Also, I am
interested in relating the information obtained from these analyses to
approximations of EMG readings. I would be very interested in any
sources/resources on 3 dimensional biomechanical analysis and/or EMG
readings as related to different muscle sizes, sex, or age. Also, I
would be interested in information on sources containing details of the
moment of inertia of the various major bones in the body. I am trying to
piece together things that I haven't seen put together in any one place
and would appreciate any help that you may have to offer... Thank you
very much.
