Tools for the Biomechanical Analysis of Human Movement: Application to Knee Osteoarthritis

2015/16-2019/20 • $215,000 • PI
My research career has focused on the development of engineering tools for the analysis of human movement. Working with my students, my research has contributed significantly to the development of techniques for the analysis and classification of human movement data. A challenge of biomechanical...

Extending 3D markerless tracking for biomechanical analysis of human gait

2019/20 • $80,000 • PI,CO
The research conducted in our laboratory uses mathematical models for assessing movement adaptations or compensations associated with osteoarthritis (OA). An important goal is to predict the progression of OA, and to predict the outcomes of surgical interventions for OA for an individual....

A System for Real-Time Estimation of In Vivo Soft Tissue Properties

2015/16 • $150,000 • PI,CO
<p>The requested Open-Platform Ultrasound Shear Wave Elastography system will provide a multi-disciplinary team of researchers the capability to identify and estimate the elastic properties of various soft tissues in the musculoskeletal system in real time. Unlike clinical systems, the proposed...

NSERC CREATE Training program in Bone and Joint Health Technologies

2010/11-2014/15 • $1,500,000 • PI,CO
The CREATE Professional Research Training Programme in Bone and Joint Health Technologies will provide highly qualified personnel trained in the integration of engineering principles, biological sciences, and information technology to solve patient oriented clinical problems through research...

A system for real-time, portable 3D medical imaging acquisition for interdisciplinary research

2013/14 • $126,644 • PI,CO
The requested system combines two unique portable medical imaging acquisition devices: a handheld 3D scanner for real-time scanning using structured light and a portable ultrasound (U/S) machine for real-time scanning using sound waves. Both imaging devices are portable, fast, have 3D capacity,...

Gait waveform analysis tools: application to knee osteoarthritis

2010/11-2013/14 • $100,000 • PI
Osteoarthritis (OA) occurs worldwide, and is probably the most common rheumatic condition that causes disability. Mechanical factors that are important to OA include abnormal loading of joints due to oddities of limb alignment and/or previous injury, unusual patterns of gait, obesity, or...

New methods for articular cartilage repair through computer-assisted surgery

Statistical Models for Establishing a Control Data set for Biomechanical Gait Analysis

2012/13 • $25,000 • PI
This proposal forms a new collaboration between Queen's University (Dr. K.J. Deluzio) and a Canadian company (HAS-Motion, Kingston, ON). The aim is to develop quality assurance criteria for 3D motion capture data of human gait. HAS-Motion's primary product, Visual3D, facilitates the analysis of...
