Biomechanical parameters


Further testing in a new biomechanical model aiming to further understand the various parameters of injury to the ankle is under planning. Funding for this has been provided from MedTech Innovation in Denmark. The research will be conducted at Aalborg University by Professor of Biomechanics, Uwe Kersting. Concomitantly a group a student has investigated the muscle activation patterns (EMG) during Spraino rescue function in 180 degrees cutting in 11 volunteers. Also, other key biomechanical parameters are calculated with motion capture. We expect to show a reduction of inversion moments – and thus a stabilizing effect, – under this model condition. The results are now being analyzed. A series of additional studies are under planning in Aalborg University.
