This course, being co-taught by C-STAR and our partner Restore Center at Stanford, will explore basic principles of using wearable sensors to effectively measure biometrics such as muscle health, movement, and vital signs in a rehabilitation population. First, we will review how common wearable sensors work and what they measure. Next, we will explore 3 research/clinical applications where wearable sensors were actively employed using IMU or EMG features. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to discuss potential approaches to using wearable devices to answer their own clinical or research questions with course faculty and participants. The course runs from October 26-27, 2021, and is eligible for CME credit.
Webinar: AddBiomechanics – Lowering the Barriers to Musculoskeletal Modeling and Large-Scale Discoveries in Biomechanics
In the first part of this webinar, Mr. Werling will present the AddBiomechanics web platform and show how it can fit into your lab’s workflow. In the second half of the webinar, he will walk participants through a hands-on tutorial of uploading and processing motion capture data, provide best practices and troubleshooting tips when using AddBiomechanics, and provide an easy “getting started” kit for data sharing compliance.
