After you have reconstructed the markers (see Capture and reconstruct the marker set) so that the capture contains all the markers that your template (VST) requires, and added any required parameters, you can create the skeletal structure, using the Labeling Template Builder section of the Subject Preparation tab.

The purpose of the skeletal structure is to define how the markers move with respect to each other, so that Nexus can use this information to automatically label the markers in real time as well as offline. The aim is to create a labeling skeleton template that will, when scaled to a subject, reliably and automatically label movement trials.

The template is used only for labeling in Nexus, so the aim is to define a labeling skeleton template that helps the labeler get it right, not one that is anatomically correct.

As explained in the following topics, creating the skeletal structure consists of creating segments between markers, and linking the segments with joints:

You can then set the marker, segment, and joint properties (see Assign marker and segment properties).
