  • summary of search for kinematic data

    Dear netters,

    here is a summary of the responses I got to my search for kinematic
    data. Thanks to all who responded to my request. My original question

    >Dear netters!
    >I want to do some gait analysis to calculate the forces in the knee.
    >At the moment I work with the kinematic data of Braune and Fischer
    >(1896). It seems to me that there must be newer (published) data
    >More precisely I am interested in:
    >- 3-D-coordinates of the joint centers of all body segments for a
    >walking subject preferable together with
    >-the related ground reaction forces and moments
    >-the estimated 3-D-coordinates of the center of mass of the segments
    >(or some sort of coefficient to calculate from the jointcenters)
    >-data concerning the properties of inertia of the segments
    >-data concerning the mass of the segments
    >Thank you in advance for your help. If there is a public interest I
    >will post a summery of the responses

    GAITLAB from Dwight Meglan:
    You will find 3D motion and load data for the knee during walking
    (also inertia parameters) buried inside the sample data I have
    included with the PUBLIC DOMAIN gait package I wrote a while back.
    You can grab the program, source code, and sample data from under the directory /pub/gaitlab.
    There are text files there that explain most things.

    reductionist method.

    I recently bought C.L. (Kit) Vaughan's book and software package
    "Gait Analysis Laboratory" (Human Kinetics Publishers). It
    included a disk with 3-D kinematic and force plate data (and
    EMG). There is also software for analysis on the disk, and the
    methodology is completely described in the accompanying book.

    The publishers are Human Kinetics and they can be contacted in Europe
