  • Re: Lower body models

    Hi Chris,

    When I was in Oxford (University of Oxford/ Oxford
    Gait Laboratory, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre) I worked
    with Tung-Wu Lu's Oxford model which utilises a
    greater trochanter marker. (Tung-Wu is now at the the
    National Taiwan University.)

    I'm not sure how a trochanter marker can replace ASIS
    markers as the femurs are not rigid to the pelvis, so
    surely they would give you location but not
    orientation. Secondly we found the trochanter marker
    very difficult to implement in practise. Marker
    placement, skin movement and the requirement for
    skin-tight or extremely skimpy clothing all cause

    I'm not sure if the Oxford model currently exists in a
    body-builder format or not, but I suspect it does.

    Best of luck,
