A few days ago, the Institut Català del Peu organized a seminar for students of more advanced courses of Orthopedics, and this one was about the significance of the different systems of biomechanical analysis. This seminar was given by Miguel Angel Baños Bernad, (Manager of the Institut Català del Peu) and also by the podiatrists […]
BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS THROUGH THE VICON SYSTEM
Stabilometry (posturological study of balance):
It allows the evaluation and measurement of the postural quality of the patient, in order to obtain postural reeducation and correction of erroneous loads.
Its graphical representation is shown on the screen (statocin-sketch) of the successive positions of the pressure center and allows a measurement of oscillations (stabilogram).
BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS OF THE CYCLIST
The functional characteristics of each individual demand compensatory needs in dynamic interaction with the bicycle conditioning the biomechanics. The correct arrangement of the body with respect to the bike guarantees reduction of discomfort in feet, knees, hips, back, neck, hands, as well as physiological biomechanics, correct dynamic alignments reducing the risk of injury, increasing comfort and optimizing performance.
In relation to the functional range that has on the stretcher each cyclist, we propose a solution on the bike that demands the minimum of residual movements. The closed biomechanical means conditions the degree of compensation available. Consequently, we define non-physiological behaviors, dynamic misalignments and a deformation of the technical gesture.
