Biomechanics: Modelling of the human shoulder

Duration: 2 Summers / Newcastle University CREST / 2005, 2006

During my undergraduate degree I spent two summers working at newcastle university conducting Biomechanics research.

I applied engineering principles to the human body to gain an insight into how muscles work in the shoulder. This gave me an understanding of human shoulder movement in the most fundamental and mathematical way.

I also designed and implemented an experiment working with a Surgeon who wanted to record the 3D motion of the scapular. I started from scratch, learning basic robotics and programmed software designing a user interface for a motion capture system.
