The following reference points and planes on lateral cephalograms were used: L1, the incisal tip of the mandibular central incisor; M7, the distobuccal cusp tip of the mandibular permanent second molar; mandibular plane (MP), the line between gonion and gnathion; L1-MP, the perpendicular distance from the tip of L1 to the mandibular plane; M7-MP, the perpendicular distance from the distobuccal cusp tip of M7 to the mandibular plane; and S-MP, the perpendicular distance from the deepest point of the VSC to the mandibular plane.
For the video data from the camera recording perpendicularly to the net, the locations of 21 body landmarks (vertex, gonion, suprasternale, right and left shoulders, elbows, wrists, third knuckles, hips, knees, ankles, heels, and toes) were manually digitized, and their horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) locations were expressed in standard units with respect to a planar origin at the midpoint of the centerline and on the ground.
