The purpose of this study was to establish the optimal training parameters to assess frontal plane, 2D kinematics using DeepLabCut. DeepLabCut is an open-source platform that allows the user to train neural networks for customized feature detection in 2D videos. Deep neural networks were trained using frontal plane videos from 41 participants who completed single- and double-leg drop landings. Networks were trained with an increasing number of training iterations (25-250k) and training frames (200-800). Our results indicate that a minimum of 175k training iterations and 400 training frames were adequate for stable network performance (training/test errors= 2.8/3.7 pixels).
