hipjoint: The hip joint data set

Description Details Value Examples

Description

The location of the hip joint centre (HJC) is required for calculations of hip moments, the location and orientation of the femur, and muscle lengths and lever arms. In clinical gait analysis, the HJC is normally estimated using linear regression equations based on normative data obtained from adult populations. There is limited relevant anthropometric data available for children, despite the fact that clinical gait analysis is predominantly used for the assessment of children with cerebral palsy.

Details

The data set has 32 rows and 10 columns. Each row corresponds to a patient and columns to a variable of interest. The variables are:
