  • Help with modeling scapulohumeral motion

    I have reeived a grant to study the validity of our kinematic analysis
    system for scapulohumeral motion. I will use fluoroscopy of the shoulder
    complex as the reference to compare the system-derived displacement
    values of the scapula and humerus during abduction in the scapular
    plane. The problem is, fluoroscopy gives a 2-D image and the kinematic
    system gives a 3-D image.

    I need a consultant biomechanist (for whom I have a budget) to assist in
    designing a model for the thorax, scapula and humerus which can assist
    the transformation of fluoroscopy data to kinematic data.

    The research will be conducted at Hunter College and the Hospital for
    Special Surgery in New York City.

    Any ideas from subscribers would also be appreciated. Thank you.
