Abstract

Recently, numerous comprehensive studies have been concentrating on the intricate kinematics of the wrist joint functionality captured with dart thrower's movement. It is envisaged that the wrist capability in performing daily activities can be more accurately characterized or encapsulated in the dart thrower's movement. This study examines the characteristic function of wrist movements during dart-throwing motion using only gyroscopic data measured from inertial sensors. A multi-dimensional form of dart throwing trajectory is described using quaternion representation associated with distance metric to quantitatively validate the functional wrist performance between two cohorts; healthy cont..
