The characterization of the kinematics and kinetics of anatomical joints is a central problem in biomechanics. Traditionally, the kinematics of the joint has been characterized using the helical axis of motion (HAM) and Euler angles. The estimation of these quantities from optical measurements of landmarks placed on the anatomical parts constituting the joint is difficult and often fraught with error.
