Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Everyday physiological activities generate impacts between the foot and ground. This dynamic loading influence the musculoskeletal system, especially bone creation and resorption. Dynamic loading on the human system is evaluated by the expert developed in-vivo, non-invasive methodology, where a small accelerometer is attached to various points on the musculoskeletal system and the response to the variety of activities is acquired. This information is used to identify various pathological conditions, to study performance of various footwear, runnig and playing surfaces, etc. This experimental technique of non-invasive monitoring of the foot strike induced shock waves was also used to evaluate the pathological conditions in equine biomechanics.

Expert has an extensive experience in reconstruction of automobile accidents. His reports are used during trials and he often is called to testify as an expert witness.

injury reconstruction

A portable system capable to acquire and store the impact generated shockwaves while walking, running, skiing, horse riding was developed by expert's Biomechanics Laboratory and was used to compare various footwear, playing and running surfaces, identify lameness in horses.

Expert developed a system capable to acquire comprehensive data related to gait analysis. The system consists of force plate to acquire the foot-ground reaction forces and moments, optical system capable to record the movement and extract the coordinates of various points on the musculoskeletal system and accelerometry system to measure the gait induce shock waves at number of locations along the skeleton.

gait analysis

Expert developed and implemented optical methods for deformation measurements in micro and opto-electronic packages subjected to thermo mechanical loads. This information was used to improve the design and reduce the residual stresses in the product. Similar approach was used to verify some patent infringement claims.
