Dear Subscribers,

Prabhav Saraswat from the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Utah will be giving a free webcast presentation on Wednesday October 28th on the subject of:

"A Multi-segment Musculoskeletal Foot Model for Clinical Gait Analysis"

Several full body musculoskeletal models have been developed for research applications and these models may potentially be developed into useful clinical tools to assess gait pathologies. Existing full-body musculoskeletal models treat the foot as a single segment and ignore the motions of the intrinsic joints of the foot. This assumption limits the use of such models in clinical cases with significant foot deformities. Therefore, a three-segment musculoskeletal model of the foot was developed in the AnyBody Modeling System(tm) to match the segmentation of a recently developed multi-segment kinematic foot model.

Notice that to accommodate viewers from different sides of the planet we are running the presentation twice - this time with 5 hours interval:

1st show: Wednesday, October 28 - Salt Lake City (8 AM), Munich (3 PM), Moscow (5 PM), Beijing (10 PM), Tokyo (11 PM)
2nd show: Wednesday, October 28th - San Francisco (12 PM), Toronto (3 PM), Rio de Janeiro (5 PM), Auckland (8 AM, Thursday).

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 sign up here: http://www.anybodytech.com/index.php?id=961
