Deviating Running Kinematics and Hamstring Injury Susceptibility in Male Soccer Players:

Deviating Running Kinematics and Hamstring Injury Susceptibility in Male Soccer Players

Cause or Consequence? Joke Schuermans, PT, PhD

This short study description is based on the paper that has recently been published (online) in Gait and Posture. For the present Qualisys user story, the focus was specifically diverted to the methodology, rather than the contextual background.  For more detailed information regarding this topic, we kindly refer the reader to the original manuscript.

Badminton 3D testing at Centre of Excellence

Badminton 3D testing at Centre of Excellence

In October 2017, Qualisys motion capture was used for intensive and unique testing, of badminton players, at The Centre of Excellence (COE) in Holbæk, Denmark.

Aalborg  University visited Stenhus Gymnasium where the center is located to perform tests on the COE players.

In badminton, as in many other sports, there is focus about understanding minute details of technique and training to improve performance. Often there can be a feeling of a right way to do things but it is very hard to quantify small changes and features of success. With Qualisys motion analysis, this is possible.

The focus of the tests was a new product called Spraino® that is designed to prevent ankle sprains, but also the center of mass and whether the height influences the speed of badminton players.

Virginia Tech pushes its limits in Virtual Reality in The Cube.

“More than just a media lab…”
– Virginia Tech pushes its limits in Virtual Reality in The Cube.

Virtual reality enables many interesting applications through the use of motion capture such as virtual training for military purposes, virtual stimuli generation for motor control research, and virtual design.

Our users at Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology took the application of virtual reality and applied it towards human studies in a facility which seemingly exists in an alternate universe.

The Cube has been able to expose the public to VR Sciences through its educational innovation by hosting festivals, such October’s Virginia Tech Science Festival, and by inviting its students and the public to immerse themselves into a world of artistic discovery.

Virginia Tech, Granata Lab

Human biomechanics

Dr. Queen directs the Kevin P. Granata Biomechanics Lab (Granata Lab) at Virginia Tech and thus has full access to all of its resources. The Granata Lab encompasses 2,500 sq. ft. of space in Norris Hall on the Virginia Tech campus. Norris Hall is one of the engineering buildings on the Virginia Tech campus and houses faculty office and classrooms for the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics.

Most of the laboratory space is used for motion capture as well as biofeedback training.  All of the laboratory equipment is around the perimeter of the lab, which allows for ample open floor space for all necessary training.  In addition, the elastic bands that are needed for the tactile biofeedback portion of the project are currently available in the lab.
