Because of the spatial orientation of the complex human movement, it was necessary to define the spatial dimensions of the physical space in which the movement occurred using data from two high-speed film cameras placed such that their optical axes were orthogonal. A 3-D Fortran program was developed for this study. After the film was digitized and computerized to produce a three-dimensional graphic display, a detailed analysis of the movement pattern and visual communication to the practitioner/instructor was possible. This method has usefulness in the study of many types of human movement in ergonomics and rehabilitative medicine as well as sports, exercise, and dance.
