Paper Abstract

Hyperkinetic movements, a predominant feature of diseases of the motor system, were measured by using a TV camera system that recognises reflective markers on the body of the patients and reconstructs their 3-D trajectories. Kinematic analysis of the movements allows a global assessment of the hyperkinesias and quantitative classification of torticollis, chorea and athetosis. The value of biomechanical analysis based on kinematic measurement in establishing invariant paramenters of hyperkinesia are discussed.
