What do sensors, pressure plates and light have to do with the human spine? We usually think of more invasive procedures such as x-rays when it comes to the analysis of the human locomotor system. Measuring systems based on biomechanical processes, on the other hand, are non-invasive and offer a holistic picture. This May the Topic of the Month at MEDICA-tradefair.com is all about biomechanical gait and posture analyses.
Measuring results step by step – zebris motion analysis
Embedded in plates or treadmills, sensors that measure the pressure distribution during walking are efficient tools to help diagnose and treat misalignments or to assist in rehabilitation. They enable comprehensive motion analysis without the need to invade the patient's body. Zebris offers this type of biomechanical measuring technology in different device solutions.
Biomechanical measuring systems – motion and posture analysis in orthopedics
Biomechanical measuring systems are used in orthopedics to diagnose and treat misalignments and diseases. The Velamed Company uses its high-tech solutions to measure biomechanical parameters that enable a holistic analysis of human movement and posture. We took a closer look at how this works.
