Abstract:

This paper quantifies the system characteristics for a pediatric foot and ankle biomechanical model. While orientated along the Z-axis the static system resolution is computed at 0,32 0,29 mm with 99,9 accuracy Dynamic resolution and accuracy are 0,43 0,39 mm and 99,8, respectively Angular dynamic resolution computes to 0,52 3,36 degrees at 99,6 accuracy. These calculations are comparable to the Milwaukee adult foot and ankle model.
