  • In Vitro Applications and fMRI with in Biomechanics

    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

    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.
