Abstract

Data filtering is a challenging procedure for the biomechanics scientists. It is however a fundamental part of biomechanical analysis when higher derivatives are needed to examine the movement. We present graphics user interface software specially designed to help biomechanics lecturers and students. It is openly designed to provide a powerful tool that could also be used for research purposes. Manual and automatic filtering procedures are provided along with single or batch processing of files. The program can process exported ASCII data files but also can be linked with the well-known APAS movement analysis program and read its binary files. Future work includes processing of many other binary files from other motion analysis systems.
