Title Parametrization of cyclic motion and transversal sections
Abstract Cyclic motion is at the core of many sports such as running, swimming, or cycling. The study of corresponding kinematic variables is fundamental for the evaluation of training routines and the assessment of performance. Conventional kinematic analysis of human cyclic locomotion derives characteristic features from a few single cycles (e.g., average peak, average difference between peaks, as in Harris and Smith, 1996). However, most current methods ignore the full dynamics of the motion that may reveal important additional insight into patterns of motor control (Schablowski-Trautmann & Gerner, 2006).
