Geometric model of the human body for static and kinematic analysis
Biomechanika'06 / Międzynarodowa Konferencja (06-08.09.2006 ; Zakopane, Polska)
The paper presents geometric model of the human body. With the help of markers and angles body might be oriented both in static and kinetic conditions according to acquired reference system. Basic model consists of 17 parts - five for centroid and three for every extremity. Developed model consists of 30 parts. Pelvis was established as a main part of the body orientation. Special attention was paid to description of shoulder's position.
