Summary Recently, a renewed attention has been drawn into the dart-thrower's motion as the radiocarpal joint is unique to humans and this is believed to have played a pivotal role in human evolution. Considering the importance of the motion and the complexity of the wrist joint, there have been many articles discussing the kinematics behind this movement. CT scan techniques have been used in a number of these research activities. Due to limitations in the speed of the image acquisition, the positions of the wrist were recorded in static postures. To our knowledge, a data acquisition for the motion with realtime capturing has not been reported. This paper presents the use of a 3D vision-based motion capture device. Leap Motion Controller (LMC), for measuring the radiocarpal joint angles during the dart-thrower's motion in a real-time analysis. The practical capability of the LMC in measuring dart-thrower's motion was examined in a trial involving four subjects and the angles were compared to the angles acquired from an inertial measurement unit (IMU). The results confirmed the LMC can successfully be used in the application of measuring radiocarpal kinematics" of dart-thrower's motion.
