In both the analysed subjects the proximal thigh showed the largest soft tissue artefact. This is subject- and task-specific. However, larger artefact does not necessarily produce larger propagated error on knee rotations. Propagated errors were extremely critical on ab/adduction and internal/external rotation. These large errors can nullify the usefulness of these variables in the clinical interpretation of gait analysis.
