ACL Injuries

Overview

RENCI collaborated with Dr. Steve Marshall (UNC School of Public Health) to gain better insight into ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) knee injuries.

motionmonitor_1RENCI’s high-resolution visualization technology was used to show the movement of the knee during jumping. Using the RENCI visualization wall, Marshall was able to view his data as pictures of the jumping motion and to simultaneously observe the jumping motion and multiple graphs measuring various force parameters. This allowed Marshall to see relationships between styles of jumping and levels of force and develop a better understanding of how certain motions increase the likelihood of suffering an ACL injury.
