Dr. Berme:

The work by Dr. King and his student N.K. Mital is described in ...

Mital, N. K. and A.I. King "Computation of Rigid-Body Rotation in
Three-Dimensional Space From Body-Fixed Linear Acceleration Measurements."
Proceedings of the Winter Annual Meeting of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers, Bioengineering Division, December 10-15, 1978,
San Francisco, CA. Paper 78-WA/Bio-5

I believe the paper can also be found in the Transactions of the ASME,
in the ASME Journal of Biomechanical Engineering.
