Institute for Orthopaedic Movement Diagnostics

OrthoGo is concerned with the planning of therapy and the success monitoring of surgical interventions in orthopaedics. In addition, movement analysis is used in technical orthopaedics. This is why walking in particular is at the forefront of the analysis, but other everyday actions such as climbing stairs, lifting objects or evasive and jumping manoeuvres are also examined.

Every year, the OrthoGo, as a university and independent research institute, OrthoGo produces numerous medical reports and offers its expertise in reviewing the effectiveness and approval of medical products.

Vantage is Vicon’s flagship range of cameras. The sensors have resolutions of 5, 8 and 16 megapixels, with sample rates up to 2000Hz – this allows you to capture fast movements with very high accuracy. The cameras also have built-in temperature and bump sensors, as well as a clear display, to warn you if cameras have moved physically or due to thermal expansion. High-powered LEDs and sunlight filters mean that the Vantage is also the best choice for outdoor use and large volumes.

The Cometa Pico (EMG) sensors are small, light-weight and have on-board storage to allow measurements in the field. Easy to attach and easy to charge, the long battery life, the high signal-to-noise ratio and the wireless range are other features that make the aktos the best EMG system on the market today.

The Optima is the flagship among force plates. The patented calibration technology guarantees the highest possible accuracy across the entire surface of the plate – ideal for gait analysis, biomechanical research and other applications where the highest quality data is essential.

Evaluation of short-stem prosthetics at OrthoGo

In hip arthroplasty, minimally invasive surgical methods are increasingly being used. The main aim of this technique is to protect the muscles and tendon insertions in order to achieve the fastest possible recovery. Using clinical motion analysis and the method of radiosterometry, accelerated rehabilitation using short-shaft prostheses for the hip joint is evaluated in OrthoGo in order to generate resilient data material for medicine and the treatment of patients. The aim is to determine the surgical approaches that are most likely to lead to a successful healing process.
