Enforcing cyclic movements of the upper limb for movement analysis systems
Metcalf, C.D., Yule, V.T., Burridge, J.H. and Chappell, P.H. (2005) Enforcing cyclic movements of the upper limb for movement analysis systems. In, Bath Hand & Wrist Biomechanics Symposium, Bath, UK, 10 Jun 2005. 1pp.
Analysing the movement of the upper limb is difficult due to the variability and complexity of the mechanics available to complete any given task. When combining a clinical hand function assessment with the analysis of cyclic movement patterns clinicians are able to generate an independent assessment of function, in conjunction with waveforms of movement during a prehensile task, which is clinically relevant.
Applying repetitive tasks to facilitate movement analysis is quite common and usually incorporates the use of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) [1,2] or reach-to-grasp tasks [3,4]. In 2001, Fowler, et al., employed an adapted version of a hand function test in order to provide more stable movement patterns .
