Abstract

The method developed uses three video cameras (60 fields per second) to record the movement. The body segment co-ordinates are captured manually on each image. No anatomic markers are used for a 14-segment human body representation. The data extracted from the images are interpolated to calculate information for non-recorded instants. The 3D reconstruction is made using the DLT calibration procedure.
