  • Re: Helical Motion

    Hugh Crenshaw, in a recent series of papers, has extensive discussion of
    the mathematics, and computation of helical trajectories. Its' very
    thorough stuff, and he does a lot of analysis of errors associated with
    determining the appropriate motion from video data that may be subject to
    sampling bias associated with the frequency of data collection. I think he
    has made the code (Matlab) available. One caveat: Hugh is looking at this
    in microorganisms that swim in helicies, so he incorporates translation and
    rotation, and his computational techniques may not be as well matched to
    your needs as in other (purely biomechanical) cases. He's at Duke, if
    anyone cares to look.

    cheers
