Summary The study of human motion dates back more than 2000 years. With the event of information technology, new areas have been added to this field. Research using computer vision and computer graphics contributes to a transformation of biomechanics into a discipline that now applies computing technology throughout; on the other hand, computer vision and computer graphics also benefit from defining goals aimed at solving problems in biomechanics. Besides interactions, all three areas also developed their own inherent research dynamics towards studying human motion. Researchers from all three of these.
