To All:

I am seeking out information pertaining to "in vitro" biomechanical joint
analysis of ligaments, tendons, muscles and related skeletal properties in
human cadavers. I am familiar with work done by Hewett at Cincinnati
Children's Hospital and Manal/Buchanan at University of Delaware, but
seeking more information more specifically to the spine and neck. If you
are aware of website materials that I can further review I would appreciate
an email directing me to the site.

One for the issues in biomechanics is that with passive (Retro-reflective)
markers once they become moist or submerged in a fluid, they lose their
retro-reflectivity properties. But at Qualisys we solved that issue, (with
in water system) and can see and calibrate while markers are submerged and
wet.

However, several accounts are asking for more specific information on who is
using passive markers in "in vitro" applications.

Secondly, we also know the issues with having cameras in a fMRI room.
Electromagnetic radiation from any electrical device interferes with MR
signals resulting in bad data. Our New OQUS MRI camera is completed
shielded, in effect creating a Faraday cage resulting suitable for use in an
MRI environment. Qualisys is also seeking website so that we can learn more
about the specific applications of such research and clinical needs.

Any information would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
