Six-degree-of-freedom instrumented spatial linkages are often used to measure anatomical joint motion for clinical studies or research applications in biomechanics. Their appropriate design is a fundamental issue to allow for accurate measurements and ease of application, and this mainly relies on addressing the kinematic analysis of the linkage. The aim of this paper is to integrate and extend past literature in the field by giving a generalized set of guidelines and ready-to-use mathematical relationships to approach the whole kinematic analysis of a general instrumented spatial linkage in a systematic way. The direct kinematics is formulated using common robotics formulation and, with reference to a specific linkage architecture, a geometrical approach is proposed to solve for the inverse kinematics in closed-form. Kinematic error analysis is addressed in a generalized way by using differential transformation theory, and it is then applied to the specific case under study. By the proper definition of a virtual joint, the inverse kinematics is used to estimate the static performance of the linkage over its specific task space.
