I am a physical therapist and a doctoral candidate doing my research work
in locomotion in children with cerebral palsy. I would like to know about
the availability of a software for 3D calculation of body center of mass
during walking that does not assume side symmetry. We are using a two
position sensor Optotrak system to generate 3D kinematic data from both
sides. Program codes (basic or C) in which the anthropometric variables can
be changed to accommodate different age groups (ex: Dampster or Jensen) are
preferable.

I thank you all in advance, and I will post any reply as usual.
