Kinematic Data Collection and Analysis
Kinematic data from cadaveric studies has been used to validate new technologies and design new surgical devices. Patient kinematics has been used to address movement-related pathologies for the design of potential interventions.
The laboratory is capable of capturing kinematic data using several state-of-the-art hardware systems, including:
- Optotrak Certus (Northern Digital)
- Fastrak (Polhemus)
- Liberty (Polhemus)
- Moiré Phase Tracking System (Metria Innovation)
- ShapeTape (Measurand)
Three-dimensional scanning is performed using a FastSCAN laser scanner (Polhemus). Deformation and marker motion can also be captured with the laboratory's digital image correlation (DIC) camera system (ARAMIS 3D Real Time 4M).
