The VA Medical Center’s Motion Analysis Laboratory is working on developing a running clinic to evaluate patients biomechanics with lower limb pathology. The project would entail extracting data in our Vicon Motion Analysis software and exporting for further computation and reporting. Applicants would need a strong background in coding in Matlab/Python, but no experience in motion capture or biomechanics. Virtual position that would require minimal face-to-face meetings.
Physical Therapy and Athletic Training
Volunteer; This is a work-study research position; Prepare a UROP proposal; Write an Honors Thesis or Senior Thesis; Earn independent study credit
The student would be developing the Matlab/Python code for data computation and reporting of patients biomechanical data.
Research and clinical experience in a biomedical environment focused around motion analysis. Opportunity for abstract and manuscript submission pending on students commitment.
A minimum of 5 hrs/week for the duration of the project and further experience throughout the semester can be negotiated based on student's interest.
