Multivariate Techniques in Biomechanical Analysis
This work outlines the theoretical advantages of multivariate methods in biomechanical data, validates the proposed methods and outlines new clinical findings relating to knee osteoarthritis that were made possible by this ...
MIMU sensors for joint kinematic estimation: anatomical landmarking and frame correction
The ability to capture human motion allows researchers to evaluate an individual’s gait. Gait can be measured in different ways, from camera-based systems to Magnetic and Inertial Measurement Units (MIMU). The former uses ...
Scaphoid and Lunate Carpal Mechanics Over the Spectrum of Healthy Function
When ligaments within the wrist are damaged, the resulting loss in range of motion and grip strength can lead to reduced earning potential and restricted ability to perform important activities of daily living. Left ...
Improved Accuracy in Optical Motion Capture Measurements Leads to Increased Sensitivity to Kinematic Changes
Clinical optical motion capture allows us to obtain kinematic and kinetic outcome measures that aid clinicians in diagnosing and treating different pathologies affecting healthy gait. The long term aim for gait centres is ...
An investigation of lower limb joint powers as a predictive measure of countermovement vertical jump height.
Measuring and tracking athletic performance is crucial to an athlete’s development and the countermovement vertical jump is often used to measure athletic performance, particularly lower limb power. The linear power developed ...
