Nachi Chockalingham, PhD. The biomechanics research community is a tight-knit and passionate group. Over the last few decades, few researchers have shown that passion on display quite like Nachiappan ‘Nachi’ Chockalingam, PhD. Nachi is a professor of clinical biomechanics and the...
Did you think the F-Scan™ system was just for measuring in-shoe pressure? Well, you're in for a surprise. Occasionally, one of our users or partners will share a new way they are using their F-Scan system in ways we never considered – even with animals! Here are two recent examples from...
From measuring pressure distribution from impacts, to in-skate foot function analysis, there are several ways to use Tekscan technology in ice hockey studies. Ice hockey is one of the fastest and most dangerous sports played worldwide. Its players are celebrated for their toughness, quickness, and...
Ask any podiatrist, and they’ll tell you: There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all method to orthotic selection. Every patient requires a unique approach to understand his or her needs for fit and comfort. There’s only so much visual observation or force plate technology can...
A commonly debated question in gait research surrounds the best methods to capture the most natural gait. Force plates may be one of the more accurate tools available, but that can come with some limitations – especially when working with animals. The weight of the animal, paw size and their...
This article summarizes the following research: A., Soonjae, K., Seunghyeon, S., Kang, J., Hyeseon, K., Youngho. “Asymmetrical Change in the Pelvis and Spine During Cross-Legged Sitting Postures,” Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology 27 (11) (2013) 3427-3432. DIO 10.1007/s12206-...
Collecting and analyzing joint biomechanics data is a complicated process, often requiring several systems to capture essential data needed for analysis. With this in mind, the BioRobotics Lab has developed a solution to help streamline and simplify this process – the simVITRO system . Their...
When developing or testing the effects of footwear design , in-shoe pressure measurement provides important data to understand foot motion and movement, and can even provide an indication of comfort. The ability to identify areas of high pressure in the footwear gives a warning to potential sources...
Gait analysis researchers are a data-driven breed. Your gait analysis depends on total clarity of your data capture, right down to the finest detail. With the Strideway™ modular gait analysis system , you’re never at the mercy of how your system averages or interprets your data; with...
When analyzing how a person navigates obstacles, maintains balance in moving vehicles and walkways, or adjusts their gait while crossing uneven surfaces, there is little that force plate technology can provide to enhance your research. The only way to really understand and measure the nuances that...
