The C3D file format provides a common method of storing 3D and analog information in a file and is supported by many popular motion capture systems. The C3Dserver is a fully functional and free evaluation version of the Software Development Kit including complete VB and C++ source code examples for creating, reading and writing C3D files.   More info at www.c3d.org

3-D software and data accompanying the book:  C.L. Vaughan, B.L. Davis, and J.C. O'Connor, "Dynamics of Human Gait", 1st edition, Human Kinetics Publishers, 1992, which subsquently was published by Kiboho Publishers. These files were kindly placed in the public domain by the authors. A new Windows version, on CD-ROM and including hundreds of files with patient data, has been published in 1999. For details, see the Amazon http://www.amazon.ca/Dynamics-Human-Gait-Vaughan/dp/0873223683

Contents:

  • GaitLab software package for MSDOS (ZIP file)
  • Data directory "man" (ZIP file)
  • Data directory "woman" (ZIP file)
  • Data directory "clinical" (ZIP file)

Each data directory contains four files: anthropometry, EMG, force plate, and kinematics. These files are in plain text (ASCII) format.

Installation: UNZIP the program files. In the same directory where gaitlab.exe is, create directories "man", "woman", and "clinical", and install the data.

Fortran routines for conversion between Euler/Cardanic angles, helical angles, and attitude matrices.
