Workshop Announcement: BTK: An open-source Biomechanical Tool Kit – ISB2011

Time, Date and Venue
Wednesday July 6th, 15:45-17:45, Auditorium E, ISB 2011, Brussels

The goal of the Workshop is to present an open-source Biomechanical Tool Kit (BTK) and to discuss future developments.
BTK is an open-source and cross-platform library for biomechanical analysis. BTK read and write acquisition files (C3D, TRB, ANB, RIC, etc) and can modify them. All these operations can be done by the use of the C++ API or by the wrappers included (Matlab). The mechanism to read and write file is very fast and permit to read large database or to work daily for clinical gait analysis.
Additionally, a viewer of acquisition files has been developed: Mokka.
Several projects are in progress:
- Biomechanical model: compute joint dynamic (kinematics & kinetics) from your defined model and marker set, or predefined (PluginGait, ISB).
- Interface: connection to existing databases to select and read trials with multi-criteria selection.
- And more!
BTK is available on http://code.google.com/p/b-tk/ and now is proposed as binaries with Matlab support (http://code.google.com/p/b-tk/wiki/MatlabBinaries).
Mokka is available on http://code.google.com/p/b-tk/downloads/list for Windows and MacOS X.

Everyone is welcome to attend!
We thank the ISB local organizers to provide us the opportunity to organize this workshop.

Best regards
