Six-degree-of-freedom (DOF) robotic/universal force-moment sensor (UFS) testing systems have become very useful tools in the study of biomechanics of joints. (DeFrate 2001, Fujie 2000, Rudy 1996) Researchers have successfully utilized these systems to determine joint kinematics using force control algorithms. Recent interest in using these robotic systems to reproduce previously recorded motions of a diarthrodial joint during a clinical examination has emerged. However, reproducing these previously recorded kinematics using a robotic/UFS testing system poses several problems.
