Paper Abstract

The purpose of this work is the knowledge of the upper limb kinematics for various final tasks requiring effort or precision. The aim is to integrate these results in a C.A.D. system for human engineering studies. The description of these movements proceeds from the 3-D trajectories of anatomical landmarks delivered by the VICON system. Such a representation using fixed orthogonal reference system x, y, z, does not lead to a simple analysis of the gesture. So from these data we compute a set of angular parameters which are in closer relation with the real kinematics of the upper limb. We obtain this result by the introduction of pertinent intermediate reference systems, related to each rotation degree of freedom. The result exhibit typical patterns of the temporal evolution of the angular parameters related to the task assigned to the subject. The collected data constitute a computerized catalogue of movements included in ERGODATA system.
