Abstract: A method was developed to calculate total resultant force and moment on a body segment, in three dimensions, from accelerometer data. The method was applied for an analysis of intersegmental loading at the hip joint during the single support phase of working and running, using four triaxial accelerometers mounted on the upper body. Results were compared to a conventional analysis using simultaneously recorded kinematics and ground reaction forces. The loading patterns obtained by both methods were similar, but…
