Kinetics Toolkit 0.3 is now released. This version focuses on the kinetic analysis of wheelchair propulsion – my lab’s specialty 🙂

The main additions are these two modules:

  • pushrimkinetics:
    • reads files from instrumented wheelchair wheels;
    • reconstructs the pushrim forces and moments;
    • removes dynamic offsets in kinetic signals;
    • performs speed and power calculation.
  • cycles:
    • detects biphasic cycles based on configurable thresholds, signal heights, and minimal and maximal phase durations;
    • time-normalizes these cycles;
    • stacks these cycles;
    • finds the most repeatable cycles.

Also, Kinetics Toolkit is now distributed via conda-forge in addition to PyPI, which eases its installation.

Please consult every new features and improvements in the release notes.
