Dear list readers,

During ISB-13 in Perth last week, an announcement was made that a draft
proposal on 3-D kinematics will be published shortly in the ISB Newsletter,
with a request for comments.

Following the joint angle debate on Biomch-L during February and March 1990,
I am pleased to be able to say that two vendors of 3-D biokinematics equip-
ment have promised (during the recent Clinical Gait Analysis meeting in
Richmond, Virginia/USA) to implement the so-called "helical" convention
next to the other convention(s) already available in their systems. This
shall certainly facilitate the community to provide the comments that will
be asked for by the ISB standardisation committee.

In addition, I might point out to our recent subscribers that a FORTRAN
test programme implementing these various conventions can be obtained from
the Biomch-L fileserver, by sending the following command (Subject: line

get prp fortran
