Grahic Jump Location
Density image of a whole body DEXA scan of a human male. Materials that are more dense appear more white, enabling the user to see the skeletal system and more accurately digitize body segments and select segment endpoints.
Grahic Jump Location
Density images outlining segmentation lines of five body segments. a) Forearm and hand segmentation lines at the elbow and wrist. b) Thigh segmentation lines at the hip and knee. c) Leg and foot segmentation lines at the knee and ankle.
Grahic Jump Location
Body segment parameter differences in the thigh segment between four human populations (YM=Young Males, OM=Older Males, YF=Young Females, OF=Older Females). Mass distributions are presented as a percent whole body mass a). Center of mass distributions are presented as a percent segment length b). Radius of gyration distributions are presented as a percent segment length c).
