Abstract
The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate an anatomically based offset that would move the conventional ankle joint center to a more accurate location, without requiring medical imaging or markers at the tips of the malleoli. We hypothesized that common anthropometric measurements could be used to define the offset, and that its use would reduce calculated joint translations at the ankle complex during gait.
