Dear Colleagues,

Catherine Manders from the University of Southampton will be giving a
free webcast presentation on Tuesday, January 29th (NB: Wednesday Jan.
30th in some places of the world). The title is:

Validation of Hip Joint Force Simulation by Gait Analysis
---------------------------------------------------------
This webcast describes a study in which the validity of two gait models
created in the musculoskeletal modelling programme AnyBody was
investigated. The models used recorded force plate data and were driven
kinematically with motion capture data. The contact force at the hip was
calculated and compared to experimental data from instrumented hip
prostheses available in the literature. Although there were some
discrepancies between the model results and the literature data, the
model results fell within the limits of patient to patient variation. To
investigate the variation further, the torque at the hip, which is
calculated directly from the force plate and kinematics data and is
independent of the muscle recruitment model, was determined from the
model and compared to the torque calculated for the literature subjects.

To accommodate viewers from different sides of the planet the
presentation will run twice with 12 hours interval - NB Note the times:

First show:
-----------
Tuesday Jan. 29th (GMT 8AM, Berlin at 9AM, Beijing at 4PM, Tokyo at 5PM,
Sydney at 7PM)

Second show:
------------
Tuesday Jan. 29th (GMT 8PM, Berlin 9PM, New York at 3PM, San Francisco
at 12PM)
Wednesday 30th (Auckland at 9AM)

The duration of the webcast is approximately one hour including Q&A.

The event is free but it is necessary to sign up to participate. Please

Best regards,
John
