Abstract : A 3-space electromagnetic tracking device is used for determinating the position and orientation of a sensor relative to a source by utilizing the principle of low-frequency magnetic field technology. A general description of the application of this system to biomechanical analysis of a spatial rigid body (cadaver elbow as an example) motion is provided. The analysis based on Eulerian angle description has been performed. The system has been found to be quite accurate and easy to use, and it would be a useful tool in kinesiologic research.
