Real-time motion capture system and 3-dimensional analyses are emerging as powerful tools in physical therapy and rehabilitation science. This session will blend comprehensive posture and balance rehabilitation to facilitate pre-gait and gait activities, including soft tissue, joint mobility, muscle strength, and range of motion activities. Integrated data from a motion capture system will be introduced to evaluate and treat dysfunction through a problem-solving process. The speakers also will present comprehensive postural compensation patterns based on kinetic data on the ground, as well as kinematic data from trunk motion, to assess balance.
Paul Sung, PT, DPT: Dr. Paul Sung is Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Dr. Sung conducted his research fellowship at the Iowa Spine Research Center in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. He is a member of the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine as well as the American Physical Therapy Association. His research interests include the mechanisms of chronic low back pain, kinetic and kinematic measures, the sports injury mechanism, and non-operative spine care and its clinical application to neuromuscular control.
