Hello everybody

Couple of weeks ago, I had posted a request on the
sources of educational videos on Biomechanics. I have
got a few responses. Below are responses. I thank
everybody who responded.

1) From my self experience, there are some good videos
available at the ‘Video Journal of Orthopaedics’
website (www.vjortho.com).

Other responses

2) Kentucky Sports Medicine has educational videos
about sports injuries,
see http://www.kysportsmed.com/. I have found them
very useful.

P.S. Please consider posting a summary to Biomch-L. A
list of
educational resources would be very good to have in
the Biomch-L
archives. This is a request from me as moderator of

A.J. (Ton) van den Bogert, PhD
Department of Biomedical Engineering
Cleveland Clinic Foundation

3) I suggest you try following companies as they
distribute our video material in USA and Canada.

We have a substantial library of recorded material.
The prices quoted
are for sales to other institutions so, if you find
material there
you would like to use, it is generally available at
the basic copying

5) Naveen,

You might be able to derive some benefit from the
recorded webcasts
available at AnyBody Technology's homepage,
http://www.anybodytech.com/199.0.html. Please notice
that you have to
register on the page to download the webcasts. They
are free, however.

You can also download several videos with
biomechanical simulations
from the
examples section: http://www.anybodytech.com/27.0.html

Best regards,

John Rasmussen,
Associate Prof., PhD, The AnyBody Group, Dept. of
Mech. Eng.

6) I contacted DePuy and they graciously sent me 5
joint replacement
videos -
the ones they use for training surgeons (and sales I
guess). I don't
have a
contact person for you to contact though, it was a few
years ago.
