APDM Wearable Technologies offers sensor-based solutions for quantifying human movement. Deployed by thousands of researchers, engineers, and clinicians worldwide, our proprietary Opal wearable sensors and sophisticated algorithms streamline data collection for automated kinematic analysis. APDM’s solutions can be used to assess range of motion post orthopedic reconstructive surgery to determine intervention success; movement data in healthy subjects for athletic performance tuning; and gait and balance strategy throughout rehabilitation in patients recovering from stroke, concussion, or spinal cord injury.

The American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) was founded in 1977 to encourage and foster the exchange of information and ideas among biomechanists working in different disciplines and to facilitate the development of biomechanics as a basic and applied science. ASB 2018 is expected to draw participants from different disciplines and fields of application such as biological sciences, exercise and sports science, health sciences, ergonomics and human factors, and engineering and applied science.

APDM offers three different solutions utilizing the Opal sensor technology designed to meet the individualized needs of our clinical researchers:
Moveo Explorer produces full-body kinematic data, including joint angles and range of motion during functional tasks.
Mobility Lab generates spatiotemporal outcome measures of gait and balance.
Motion Studio provides access to synchronized raw movement data.

APDM’s Stephanie Hertzog will be providing demonstrations at BOOTH 10 of our portable motion capture systems at ASB 2018 and the International Shoulder Group August 12-13.
