Dear All,

I have read over several papers that look at 3D gait, but there seems to be
no standard consensus on which is the best method for comparing 3D gait at
an inter or intrasubject level. I would appreciate peoples views on the
most useful comparsion techniques e.g. knee flexion & pelvic tilt & hip
flexion etc.. Or whether they think a technique for normalizing the kinetic
data across subjects then comparing the whole body movements may be useful
(of course if someone has already tried this please let me know!)

Also are the formulas set forward by bresler et al. still considered a
viable technique in calculating moments at the joints or are there better
ways?

Thanks in advance.
