Qualisys has successfully upgraded the motion capture system at Aalborg University to 6 Oqus 300 cameras and 2 Oqus 310 with High Speed Video functionality. In addition to the Oqus cameras, the system includes Qualisys Track Manager software, Visual3D analysis software, AnyBody modeling software, a Noraxon EMG system and a movable force plate.
The system is installed in the Movement Dynamics and Sport Technology Laboratory at SMI – a state-of-the art laboratory whose research focuses on different sports-related injuries, foot function, clinical implants and sport performance optimization. Head of Laboratory is Uwe Kersting, PhD, Associate Professor in Biomechanics. Visit Movement Dynamics and Sport Technology Laboratory’s website.
Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) is an inter-disciplinary, international center with a scientific and technical-administrative staff of 80 persons. SMI was established as a Center of Excellence in 1993 with support from the Danish National Research Foundation. In 2006 the School was further able to offer the first doctoral programme for elite students. The AIM in the Movement Dynamics and Sport Technology Laboratory is to study the factors involved in acute and overuse injuries in momentous and popular movement contexts such as sporting environments, work place realities and everyday movement.
The goal is to identify the factors contributing to musculoskeletal injuries on the macroscopic and tissue level. Successful athletic training is initiated on a fine line between performance leading to success or musculoskeletal overload and injury. Both dimensions are investigated in collaboration with coaches, physiotherapists and industrial cooperation partners.
