Biomechanical characteristics of the osteoarthritis knee joint is an area of increasing interest in clinical studies. Prevalence of knee osteoarthritis is on the rise across the globe, a ststistic particularly shared in Australia. The biomechanical characteristics include the joint angles and joint moments of the knee that be measured from a subject by the process of gait analysis. Gait analysis requires a motion capture system and a force plate system where the inverse kinematics and the inverse dynamics of the gait data obtained can be calculated. Data processing is a key element of theis report which requires the relevant information to be accurately and efficiently processed. Filtering techniques are implemented within this study to reduce the noise and increase the accuracy of the results.
