Traditionally, motion analysis in clinical laboratories using optoelectronic systems (MOCAP) is performed in acquisition volumes of limited size. Given the complexity and cost of MOCAP in larger volumes, action sports cameras (ASC) represent an alternative approach in which the cameras move along with the subject during the movement task. Thus, thi...

Magneto-inertial measurement units (MIMUs) are a promising way to perform human motion analysis outside the laboratory. To do so, in the literature, orientation provided by an MIMU is used to deduce body segment orientation. This is generally achieved by means of a Kalman filter that fuses acceleration, angular velocity, and magnetic field measures...

The flow generated by the swimmers has an unsteady vortex dynamic. The quasi-steady approach is, in this context, inappropriate for a comprehensive analysis so an unsteady simulation is required (Sato & Hino, 2003). A URANS (Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier- Stokes) computational study with a free surface, which uses the moving mesh method, is pro...

Usually, biomechanical models used for human motion analysis are oversimpli- fied, especially for clinical analyses (e.g. Helen Hayes model). The calculated net joint forces and torques are sensitive to the input data: segment kinematics and body segment inertial parameters. It is therefore necessary to improve these input data us- ing new methods...

The motion equations of a rigid body involve ten inertial characteristics: the mass, the mass center position and the inertia matrix. In order to identify these ten inertia characteristics, we propose an approach unifying them in a 4 × 4 positive definite symmetric matrix. The translation vector and the rotation matrix of the rigid body are also ga...
