  • Re: Biofeedback in biomechanics

    Your project reminds me of a project Neal Miller , of the Rockefeller Institute
    developed a device for helping scoliosis patients to balance their posture. It's
    an ambulatory device, so it uses audio feedback.

    You said:
    >>PCL injured individuals have increased displacement of the tibia
    relative to the femur that cannot be controlled by the same means
    as ACL injured individuals. ie Braces do not work. As a solution
    to this, I envisioned a pressure biofeedback system that would
    encourage appropriate placement of the tibia relative to the
    femur by co-contratraction of the hams and quads. There appears
    to be several simple, cost effective methods available for
    instrumenting a brace/exoskeleton. I would like to be able to log
    the number of failures/successes or duration of accurate
    placement. Based on your experience, any suggestions regarding
    the instrumentation, on/off, gradient digital/analogue...? Any
    suggestions on the log idea (how did you gauge success failure
    with your ski boots)??
