3D Gait Biomechanics Analysis Solution: 

If you have to compute joint forces and torques, or find out the power being developed at joints of human body for energy expenditure assessments, you need to look at the requirements very closely.

 

There are many components (hardware and software) for accurately calculating these quantities for Human Locomotion studies. It largely depends on your specific requirements and that can vary greatly from application to application. For example, for Gait Analysis, you may require a 3d motion capture that has high sufficiently resolution to correctly align force platforms in Virtual Lab corresponding to your actual Lab Coordinate systems, but moderate sampling rate should not be a problem. But for Sports Biomechainal studies, you need a system with very high sampling rate to capture fast paced movements of the athlete and also the portability and capability of outdoor operations. Besides, you may need real-time data availability. For research, you additionally may require clean and un-filtered raw data. 

For measuring Ground Reaction Forces, you may need large force platforms for Sports applications while for Gait Analysis, you may get away with small sized Force Plates. For Balance Studies, you may get away with 3 component (vertical only) force-platform but for dynamic movement analysis, a 6 component(3 forces and 3 moments about X,Y and Z axis) force platform or Instrumented Treadmill. For capturing reliable GRF data from each foot for complete gait cycle, you may need dual belt, Instrumented Treadmills. Similarly, you may prefer sire-free sEMG System for Sports and Patient Gait analysis.

 

In short, choosing the right combination may be overwhelming. There may be a combination of any or all components in the following list: 

  1. 3D Motion Capture System
  2. Force PlatformsInstrumented Treadmills
  3. Neuro-Physiological signal measurement system
  4. Eye Trackers
  5. Video Cameras for recording reference videos from different view-points
  6. 3D Biomechanics modeling and analysis software for Inverse Kinematics/Dynamics computations 

There are many options for each of the above. Whether you need to do link model based Inverse Kinematics Modelling/Analysis or to make muscle actuated model or forward dynamics for validation of Inverse Kinematics/Dynamics models, we offer complete solution and also installation, support and training.
