The aim of this study is to measure the kinematics of elbow joints using a newly developed motion tracking system, the Stewart platform (SP). The aim is to find a correlation between the trajectory of an intact joint and a joint suffering from laxity. Using the device, an in-vivo measurement of the center of rotation of the elbow joint was setup and the result of the left and right elbows were compared. It has been shown that unexpected motion of the joint such as laxity can be monitored using the device.
