Can I obtain joint angles data from ARENA?

Post by sj23 » Wed Jan 15, 2014 9:29 am

I am currently exporting skeleton data to the .C3D format and extracting marker information in MATLAB using the MATLAB files present on the www.c3d.org website.

The data extracted in MATLAB corresponds to only the (x, y, z) coordinates of each marker for every frame.

Is there any way I can extract the joint angles data of the skeleton from ARENA?

Dear Sj23,

If you are looking for joint angle data you will need to export as BVH. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi Dustin. Thanks for your reply. I think my reply wasn't posted but anyways, are there any recommended MATLAB toolboxes/functions that can help with extracting/ processing the data from the exported BVH format?

Dear Sj23,

We are not aware of any MATLAB toolboxes/functions that can help with extracting/ processing the data from the exported BVH format.
