Abstract

© 2015 IEEE. This paper shows the analysis of the angles in the hip, knee and ankle. In a complete cycle of pedaling, are obtained the superior values, following a protocol totally specified in the document. Through the use of an acquisition software, named Kinovea®. The data of each one of the angles are set; in this manner the data information can be exported to Matlab®. In Matlab® Software the analysis of the results is performed with each one of the test subjects. With the obtained results, the analysis is performed with the correlation factor. The correlation factors obtained in the hip and knee are greater than 0.75, meanwhile the values obtained in the ankle are oscillating between 0.2 and 0.4. All this analysis was performed with the patron subject as a reference. The patron subject is a cyclist who has national and international championships.
