Resumen

Loss of motor function is a consequence after cervical spinal cord injury. Three-dimensional kinematic analysis equipments are used for quantifying human movements in clinical laboratories. These systems may provide objectivity to the patient assessments. Nowadays, the kinematic variables found in the literature have some defciencies, and the effcient management of these data sets is a demand and a challenge in the clinical setting. The aim of the present paper is to propose a set of novel kinematic indices, as a combination of kinematic variables, for quantifying upper limb motor disorders in terms of characteristics in relation to ability and dexterity such as accuracy, effciency, and coordination. These indices are defned for measuring patients’ motor performance during the activity of daily living of drinking from a glass. This task is included within the upper limb rehabilitative process that patients receive. The main contribution of this research, with the aim of detecting upper limb impairments in patients, consists of the proposal of three kinematic indices from experimental data, whose results are dimensionless and relative to a pattern of healthy subjects. We hope that kinematic indices proposed are a step toward the standardization of the quantitative assessment of movement characteristics and functional impairments.
