Dr. Scott Selbie, CEO and Co-Founder of Theia Markerless Inc. and Director of Research at C-Motion Inc., discusses the development and validation of markerless motion tracking technology for POSE estimation of skeletal segments. He further discusses how the markerless technology is being used within and beyond research.
Dr. Heidi Ploeg, Associate Professor at Queen's University, discusses her research on the mechanical and biochemical testing of live bone tissue for the prevention of total joint replacement and/or hip fracture. She also explains how data from these complex experiments inform finite element analyses conducted in her laboratory.
Dr. Walter Herzog, Professor at the University of Calgary, discusses the theoretical evolution of molecular contractile mechanics in skeletal muscles and models used for the prediction of muscle force distribution. He also explains his research on lower limb joint biomechanics related to osteoarthritis development and ligament/meniscal injuries in the knee.
Dr. Jack Callaghan, Professor at the University of Waterloo, discusses the effects of posture on lumbar spine performance and injury risk. Low back pain development related to prolonged sedentary work exposures like sitting and standing are also explained.
CSB-SCB President, Dr. Janie Wilson, discusses the history, objectives, and initiatives of the Canadian Society for Biomechanics.
