A minimal markerset for three dimensional foot function assessment: measuring navicular drop and drift under dynamic conditions

PMCID: 5907216
PMID: 29713385
DOI: 10.1186/s13047-018-0257-2

[…] ovement will add value to foot function assessment in the future. We propose a concept which allows adding intrinsic foot movement measurements to standard 3D gait analysis protocols. Using a minimal markerset consisting of only four markers provides a “lightweight” approach in terms of preparation time, laboratory infrastructure requirements and post-processing efforts. Validating the proposed me […]


Increasing prosthetic foot energy return affects whole body mechanics during walking on level ground and slopes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5876366
PMID: 29599517
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23705-8

[…] ptured lower-limb kinematics (100 Hz). Kinetics (1000 Hz) were collected with two 6-DOF force platforms mounted under the treadmill (GRAIL system, Motek Forcelink, Amsterdam, NL) the Human Body Model markerset modified with three additional markers on each shank segment to create 4-marker clusters necessary for the ankle and foot deformation analysis. A fourth order bidirectional low-pass Butterwo […]


Where Are You Throwing the Ball? I Better Watch Your Body, Not Just Your Arm!

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5674933
PMID: 29163094
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00505

[…] The positional data of a subset of eighteen markers selected from the Motive biomechanical markerset and the positional data extracted from the ball trajectory after ball release were analyzed in this study. The subset of eighteen markers included left and right metatarsal (foot), lateral m […]


The Nature of Age Related Differences in Knee Function during Walking: Implication for the Development of Knee Osteoarthritis

PLoS One
PMCID: 5156354
PMID: 27973527
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0167352

[…] (ProReflex, Qualysis Inc, Sweden). Ground reaction forces were collected using a multi-component force-plate located in the center of the walkway (Bertec Corporation, Columbus, OH, USA). With the PCT markerset [], clusters of nine and seven reflective markers are distributed on the thigh and shank, respectively, to estimate the movements of the underlying femur and tibia. Cluster coordinate system […]


Re Sequencing Data for Refining Candidate Genes and Polymorphisms in QTL Regions Affecting Adiposity in Chicken

PLoS One
PMCID: 4205046
PMID: 25333370
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0111299

[…] The F1 sires were genotyped for a set of 9126 SNPs covering the available genome (assembly 2.1 WASHUC2). A subset of 1536 SNPs was selected using MarkerSet , based on marker location and heterozigosity in the F1 population to maximize both genome coverage and marker informativity. The average density was one SNP each 0.66 cM, i.e. one SNP for 3 […]


Detection of QTL controlling digestive efficiency and anatomy of the digestive tract in chicken fed a wheat based diet

PMCID: 4000150
PMID: 24708200
DOI: 10.1186/1297-9686-46-25

[…] ity in the experimental cross, a sample of six F0 and six F1 males was genotyped with 57 636 SNPs using the Illumina Infinium chicken SNP array. The 6000 most informative SNPs were selected using the MarkerSet software [] and were evenly distributed across 28 autosomes, one unassigned linkage group (LGE22C19) and the Z chromosome. They were used to genotype all F0 and F1 individuals and F2 progeny […]
