Abstract The dual Euler angles method has been proposed as an alternative approach to describe the general spatial human joint motion. In this study, the dual Euler angles method was applied to study the three-dimensional motion of the ankle complex. The methodology for obtaining dual Euler angles of the ankle complex was developed by using a "Flock of Birds" electromagnetic tracking device. The repeatability of the methodology was studied based on the intertester and intratester variability analysis. Finally kinematic coupling characteristics of the ankle complex during dorsiflexion-plantarflexion, eversion-inversion, and abduction-adduction were analyzed according to the parameters of the dual Euler angles.
