Postural analysis with video or 3-camera SIMI Motion Analysis system; 8-wireless 2D inclinometers which can be body mounted or put on mobile Equipment to determine inclination (relative angles) which can be used, among other things to determine inter-segmental angles and musculoskeletal disorder risk. 

Static strength measurement equipment available (push, pull, lift, particularly for upper limbs; grip, pinch) and strength analysis software (3DSSP - 3D static strength programme).

Anthropometry analysis software (MQPro software and measurement tools). 

Access to force platform (Kistler).

Alternative office Workstation components: static and dynamic tables, mobile retro-fit surfaces, chairs and postural support systems.

Equipment 4 piece(s)

Motion and activity analysis
For video analysis particularly to classify observations (posture or other events). Can coordinate other sensor capture.

Software purchased with support of NSERC RTI grant.


Video Motion Analysis system
SIMI Motion Systems
3-camera system with variable frequency recording Basler cameras and devoted computer system. New to our lab.

3 Basler cameras with Fuji computer and software specially designed to co-ordinate recordings and support 3-D determination of marker locations. Can be used with separate digital video cameras + calibration.


Wireless data capture system with inclinometers
TEA France

Physiological / ergonomic data capture from associated sensors, coordinating signals for ergonomic / biomechanical analysis.

with 8 small (3 cm x 0.7 cm x 1.5 cm) Wireless 2D inclinometers.  These determine angle from the vertical in two axes, reliably providing data up to 60 deg. deviation.


Wired ergonomic analysis system: inclination, force sensing.
TEA France

Older system similar to CAPTIV 7000.  Wired via "octopus" to bum pack.  Wirelss from bum pack recorder to computer-mounted recording system.

Pressure sensors and inclinometers for ergonomic task analysis.  Used for computer keyboard key activation (force) comparison.
