Abstract

An improved optical measurement system was developed for human joint motion studies. Key features to the device are noncontact, 2D and 3D capability, low mass, low cost, real-time tracking of multiple bodies, and improved performance specifications. The system can readily be adapted to study joint motion, and with high repeatability and resolution, is also well suited for micromotion studies of joint-implant systems. The system performance is demonstrated by an in vitro cervical spine study and calculation of the paths of the instant axis of rotation of the vertebrae.
