  • ISB Standards - Help Requested

    Readers of the ISB Newsletter will be aware that the ISB is about
    to recommend Standards for Representation of Kinematic data.
    These standards involve a basic set of recommendations for
    Global and Segmental reference frames.

    For joint angles, we propose to establish working groups of ISB
    members who are specializing in one joint or region of the body
    and to ask these groups to suggest a consensus on conventions
    for Joint Coordinate Systems at the various joints. An example
    would be the work of Grood and Suntay (1983) [A Joint Co-
    ordinate System for the Clinical Description of Three-Dimensional
    Motions: Application to the Knee, J. Biomechanical Eng. 105:136-
    144] on a JCS for the knee joint.

    This preliminary posting is to solicit the names of those ISB
    members who would be interested in being part of such a group
    to work towards a standard at a specific joint. Please include
    your name and the region(s)/joint(s) of the body in which you
    have an interest. Give a citation to a representative publication
    from your group if possible.

    Replies will be acknowledged in mid July.
