Optoelectronic systems are widely used in 3D motion capture. However, the reliability of the motion estimation depends on soft tissue artifacts and should therefore be validated. Two different sets of humeral markers were studied on four subjects. Anatomical and kinematic measurements were combined and the plausibility of the relative position of the bones in the glenohumeral joint during motion was evaluated using a new coherence index. Our findings show that an identical protocol leads to a large variability of the articular coherence for the subjects. However the use of an extra marker on the distal part of the humerus improves the humeral kinematics for three of the four subjects. Scientists and clinicians using 3D systems should remain aware of the influence of subject-specific morphology on the accuracy of the measure. Differences with a reference group may come from clinical reasons but also from measurement errors due to the inter-individual morphological differences. [less ▲]

In biomechanical modeling and motion analysis, the use of personalized data such as bone geometry would provide more accurate and reliable results. However, there is still a limited number of tools used to measure the evolution of articular interactions. This paper proposes a coherence index to describe the articular status of contact surfaces during motion. The index relies on a robust estimation of the evolution of surfacic interactions between the joint surfaces. The index is first compared to distance maps on simulated motions. It is then used to compare two motion capture protocols (two different localizations of the markers for scapula tracking). The results show that the index detects progressive modifications in the joint and allows to distinguish the two protocols, in accordance with the literature. In the future, the index could, among other things, be used to compare / improve biomechanical models and motion analysis protocols. [less ▲]

Eleven subjects were equipped with a cluster of 120 markers on the scapula. Forward humeral elevation was then performed. Robust estimators are used in order to eliminate high deformation. Results underline the modification of the best cluster during elevation. Markers located on the lateral posterior part of the acromion were identified. They could be the best ones to measure dynamic scapula rotation during entire elevation. [less ▲]
