Spine Detail for Biomechanical Analysis

  • Analyze inter-vertebral movements or vertebral movements relative to a fixed segment
  • Digitize anatomical landmarks to define the dimensions of each vertebra in the segment

Analyze Spine Movement

  • Digitize anatomical landmarks to define the dimensions of each vertebra in the segment.
  • Analyze inter-vertebral movements or vertebral movements relative to a fixed segment.
  • Use defined protocols, such as the ISB recommendations, to assign specific axes layouts and Euler angles sequences. Alternatively, use default axes for quick setup in a clinical setting.
  • Render detail spine animations.

Spine Detail

To the left is an image of a forward flexion activity for a healthy 26 year old athlete using electromagnetic sensors. In the detail spine animation, the vertebrae that appear in white have sensors attached to them. Here, sensors were assigned to T1, L1 and the sacrum for tracking these individual segments as well as the movement of their respective spinal columns. The graphs below display the degrees of lumbar flexion, flexion velocity and flexion acceleration.
