a) Dissected ovine tibia and femur with bone marker assemblies (bone plates, posts and reflective markers) used for 3-D in vivo motion analysis. b) A schematic of the bones and markers showing the coordinate transformations from which the joint kinematics were derived.
Grahic Jump Location
Average kinematics of the ovine stifle joint of subject 5 during walking on three test days. The gray region indicates ±2sd of the mean on the first test day.
Grahic Jump Location
Average kinematics of the ovine stifle joint during walking for five subjects (30 strides each). The overall mean joint position is indicated by the solid black curve.
