Case StudyBiodex System 4 is the Center of Clinical Studies in the Department of Biomedical Engineering
The Biodex dynamometer is the center of our laboratory and has been modified with multiple six-axis load cells, which allow for force and torque measurement at multiple joints simultaneously. Our Biodex machine is coupled with a 16-channel electromyography (EMG) machine (Bortec Biomedical Ltd). Data from both the load cells and EMG system are collected by LabVIEW and a National Instruments data acquisition system. This equipment allows for multiple digital and analog input/output ports, in addition to the force, torque, and EMG signals. Our system is also complemented with a dual screen computer that can be programed to give real time feedback to our subjects. Please take some time to read below about some of the ongoing projects in our Biodex Laboratory.

Biodex System 4 — "New Hire" Screening and
Return-to-Work Programs Begin Here
Employers of all sizes are paying attention to the cost of workplace accidents. While the number of reported cases, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics has decreased overall, in the most recent reported year 2009, there are occupations in the private sector such as hospital workers and truck drivers showing increases.
