Forward kinematics (abbreviated FK) refers to the calculation of limb articulation, where the rotation of a joint is defined by its local rotation and that of its parent. FK behaves in the very familiar parent-child relationship. Joint rotation is calculated 'down the chain'- the opposite is inverse kinematics, which calculates joint articulation from the position of the end of the last joint.
