Default Optimization of Body Anthropometry in Mocap Model


I have been trying to simulate Gait kinematic parameters from my c3d files using Mocap Lower Body Model, but when I run Parameter and motion optimization study to align my markers with the default one, I see various out of shape human model in MocapModel.
Also, when I run the model without performing motion optimization studies, I see that the foot markers never follow my c3d foot marker. and ultimately, the model looks as if the foot is penetrating inside the force plate.
Once the results obtained from these, I have observed that there is a huge shift in Hip, Knee and ANkle values, with profile being the same.
I feel there is some problem with the human anthropometry optimization, which is creating this shift in angle and torque profiles.
Kindly help me how to overcome this issue.
I have only these following set of anthropometry data for human c3d files:
1. leg length
2. height, weight
3. pelvic width
4. knee and ankle diameter

Please refer an excel file attached here whihc contains data from AMS and gait lab

Probably I'm not 100% sure but you may have more design parameters ( segment lengths and marker positions to optimize) than the information that you can use.

The first thing I would try is to reduce the number of your design parameters in your optimization study.

If this does not help to solve your problem, then it will be nice for us to figure out your problem if you can upload the zip file of your model here with detail information regarding your versions of AMS and AMMR.
