  • determining shoulder posture ans strain gauges

    Hello everyone, bm-l's and others,

    Here in biomechanical lab of the University of Pisa (Italy) we work
    on wearable sensors to evaluate some parameters of human movement.
    One possible application is the use of strips of conductive rubber glued
    on a lycra t-shirt as strain gauges in order to determine upper limb's
    posture (and, if possible, its dynamic).
    In fact, positioning the limb somewhere in the space with respect to a
    reference position, gives a lot of electric signals of varied
    strip-resistances and we want to find an application to fit them with a
    mathematical model (in terms of DOFs) of the upper limb in order to
    determine its posture.
    the great deal comes with the shoulder complex and what happens between
    skin and the humerus to position the latter in the space; Does anyone know
    problems associated with this way of investigation? Any suggestions?
