Muscle-by-Muscle Analysis of Asymmetry and Injury
In this webinar, Dr. Blemker, a distinguished PhD and Professor of Biochemical Engineering at UVA, delves into the existing metrics of muscular capacity. Specifically, addressing how athletes currently rely on external measures to assess strength and identify functional limitations. A crucial factor in determining peak muscle force is muscle volume, which can be quantified by employing MRI technology to capture sectional images. The measurement of muscle volume through MRI has become a widespread research tool; however, its availability is limited due to the labor-intensive process involved. Leveraging Springbok's AI-based approach, enables rapid processing of muscle MRI data, facilitating a swift analysis of asymmetry and injury, thus providing a valuable tool for athletes and practitioners.
