  • Summary of responses: "Marker placement prosthetic gait; aboveknee amputees"

    Dear all.
    Here is a summary of the responses i received on my posting regarding
    marker placement and gait analysis on above knee amputees.
    I would like to thank all who responded to my posting.

    Regards Espen
    The majority of the respones used the standard PiG/Helen Hayes/Golem
    marker setup, whereas there were two alternative marker setups (see
    paper references)
    Accept from marker setup, there were some comments regarding the changes
    of anthropometric properties when introducing a prosthesis, and problems
    regarding inverse dynamics in the polycentric knee.
    Furthermore, there were comments regarding the often debated
