The purpose of this study was to develop and test a method of three-dimensional motion analysis for the activity ”drinking from a glass” and describe the drinking task with kinematic variables in control subjects.
Three-dimensional kinematic motion analysis of a daily activity drinking from a glass: A Pilot Study Article (PDF Available) in Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation 3(1):18 · February
Three-dimensional kinematic motion analysis in this study was a useful tool for assessing the upper extremity function in different subgroups of people with stroke during the door handling task. These kinematic variables may help clinicians understand the arm movements in door handling task and consist of discriminative therapeutic …
Three-dimensional kinematic analysis equipment is a valuable instrument for studying the execution of movement during functional activities of the upper limbs. The aim of this study was to analyze the kinematic differences in the execution of a daily activity such as drinking from a glass between two groups of patients with tetraplegia and a control group.
a method of three-dimensional analysis of the drinking activity and gather the reference data for control persons. The aims of the present study were: 1. To develop a protocol and test the consistency of that protocol for the three-dimensional motion analysis of an daily activity ”drinking from a glass”, 2.
Conclusions: A detailed description was made of the three-dimensional kinematic analysis of the task of drinking from a glass in healthy subjects and in two groups of patients with tetraplegia. This was a useful application of kinematic analysis of upper limb movement in a …
The drinking task included reaching, forward transport with glass, drinking, back transport and returning the hand to the initial position. An optoelectronic system was used for the three-dimensional kinematic motion capture.

Three-dimensional kinematic analysis provides quantitative and qualitative assessment of upper-limb motion and is used as an outcome measure to evaluate impaired movement after stroke. The number of kinematic variables used, however, is diverse, and models for upper-extremity motion analysis vary.
