Validating a Tracker-based Biomechanical Model
written by J. Caleb Speirs and Shannon Keavy
A Tracker project and accompanying explanatory material showing an 8-segment Biomechanical model of the human body implemented in Tracker and compared to data derived from Vernier forces sensors.  

The center of mass function in Tracker was used to compute the center of
mass of the model in each frame given the relative positions and masses of
the 8 segments. The protractor tool was used to derive knee flexion angle
data.
