Abstract

Numerous studies have been published in the last decade aiming at describing the joint kinematics during various motor tasks. Some studies highlighted how crucial is the role of a correct identification of the skeletal landmarks (SL) for a proper interpretation of joint kinematics. In fact, SLs are required for defining the joint coordinate systems (JCS) used to describe the joint kinematics and therefore, in order to guarantee reproducible JCSs, reliable SL identifications are essential. However, while the Movement Analysis Community made a remarkable effort in standardizing both segment coordinate systems and JCS definitions, little effort has been produced in order to reduce the effects of incorrect SL identification. Fully standardized procedures for joint kinematics estimation would allow to build and to make fruitful use of reliable databases.
