Virtual anatomy and movement of lower extremities using virtual reality modeling language

Posters and Demonstrations


In medical imaging, the use of three-dimensional image is increasing for both educational and diagnostic purposes. With the advent of techniques for browsing a three-dimensional object, it became possible to display three-dimensional images on a personal computer via the Internet. This report describes the construction of a three-dimensional virtual model of human lower extremities that was linked with the data acquired from gait analysis in order to perform threedimensional gait analysis.
