Lawrence Tech Researchers Take Multifaceted Approach to Fixing Knees

Dr. Yawen Li and Dr. Eric Meyer
College of Engineering
Biomedical Engineering Faculty
Lawrence Technological University

Each year an estimated 200,000 people in the United States suffer
painful and potentially debilitating anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
tears in their knees, and that number is growing annually. Researchers
at Lawrence Technological University are looking for better methods for
repairing the damage, as well as preventing the injuries from occurring
in the first place.

The ACL connects the femur and tibia in the knee and provides
stabilization during motion. ACL tears have become a common sports
injury that can signal the end of a season or even the end of an
athlete’s career. Such injuries are also common among the elderly.

Two LTU professors and their students are examining ways to reduce the
impact of this injury. Assistant Professor Eric Meyer believes a better
understanding of the biomechanical causes of ACL tears can reduce the
number of injuries, while Assistant Professor Yawen Li is using tissue
engineering to regenerate ACL ligament tissue that could make surgical
repairs both less invasive and more effective.

Last spring, as they prepared to complete bachelor’s degrees in biomedical engineering at Lawrence Technological University (LTU), Kevin Roberts and Katelyn Fortin developed a shoe insert. The insert was made to help runners avoid shin splints and other injuries caused by putting too much weight on the heel when striking the pavement.
In keeping with LTU’s “theory and practice” approach to education, many engineering students create a product for their senior project. Mr. Roberts and Ms. Fortin studied trends in running-shoe sales, looked at the biomechanics of foot and ankle function, and consulted faculty advisor Eric Meyer about their idea for a training device that would help transfer more weight to the front of the foot. The students were focused on completing the project for graduation and were ready to leave it at that. “I just

would have taken the grade and forgotten about the idea,” said Mr. Roberts.
That changed after a meeting last fall with Tech Highway consultant Paul Garko, an LTU alumnus who is part of the LTU Entrepreneurial Collaboratory. With his guidance, they developed a business plan and applied for a patent. “They got us to think about it as a sellable product,” said Mr. Roberts of the problem-solving approach the Collaboratory consultants provided. “They shaped the project in the direction it needed to go.”
Mr. Roberts and Ms. Fortin went back to the drawing board to resolve problems with the design and then tackled commercialization issues. Finalizing the design will take about a year, and then they hope to have a marketable product ready to show investors. As part of the Collaboratory’s emphasis on using a target customer to test the product under development, Mr. Garko found a running club whose members were willing to train with the shoe insert.

Footwear Properties and Football Injuries

FootwareExcessive rotational traction that occurs at the interface between the shoe and the playing surface, as well as shoe properties such as rotational stiffness, may have the potential to influence the high incidence of lower extremity injuries in athletes.

By Feng Wei, PhD, and Eric G. Meyer, PhD

American football is one of the most popular sports in the United States. In 2010 more than 1.1 million male high school athletes from more than 14,000 high schools and more than 66,000 male collegiate athletes played football. Participation in high school football has been continuously increasing, with more than 100,000 additional participants (a 12.2% increase) between 1997 and 2007. Football is also a leading cause of sports-related injuries. Out of all high school sports, football has the highest overall injury rate, almost twice that of basketball. Reports estimate that more than 300,000 high school athletes sustain football-related injuries annually…read more. Dr. Meyer

Computer Science Project with the EBL Vicon System

Jeremy Quinlin’s description of the work:
The demo reel consists of animations rendered in Autodesk MotionBuilder 2011/2012.

We recorded my motions using the motion capture program, Vicon Nexus. I was set up in a motion capture suit, complete with reflective spheres that only reflected light straight out. We recorded my motion using multiple cameras in a circle, with me in the middle. Each camera had LEDs around the lenses, which they would detect when reflected off the spheres. By combining what markers each camera sees, the program was able to extrapolate three dimensional data in real time. I was then able to sift though the raw data and fill in some of the marker gaps that the program missed.

I then took a pre-made model created by a member in our team and constructed a skeletal structure for the model in Autodesk 3ds Max. I used a skin modifier and selected the envelopes (the bones). Utilizing different weights, I bound the model to the skeletal structure, doing my best to make sure the stretching of the model looked right. This was easily the longest part of the process as it took awhile to determine the right amount of weight a bone component has over a particular polygon. The time it took was then increased when I was given a higher polygon count model. After i was finished with the bone structure and skin modifier, I then exported it to Autodesk MotionBuilder.

I then mapped an actor onto the bone structure, and then took the data from Nexus and mapped it to that actor. The actor was then driven by the motion capture data, which was mapped to the bone structure, which was rigged up to the model. The result was a model mimicking my own movements. I loaded up each individual animation and rendered them separately and combined them afterwards once I was happy with the results. Dr. Eric Meyer

Chapter 1. Biomechanical Response of the Knee in Sports Injury Scenarios
(Eric G. Meyer and Roger C. Haut)

International Research Council on the Biomechanics of Impact Conference

Comments Off

Dr. Meyer recently presented his research at the International Research Council on the Biomechanics of Impact Conference in Dublin, Ireland.

Abstract: High ankle sprains represent a severe injury in sports. External foot rotation is suspected in these cases, but the mechanism of injury remains unclear. The objective of the current study was to integrate in vitro and in vivo experiments along with computational models based on rigid bone surfaces and deformable ligaments of the ankle to investigate the external foot rotation injury mechanism with different shoe constraints and ankle positioning. Injuries and the highest strains occurred in the anterior deltoid ligament (ADL) when the foot was held in neutral with athletic tape. Similarly, ADL strains were highest when a football shoe design with a high rotational stiffness was used to constrain the foot. For a flexible shoe, the anterior tibiofibular ligament (ATiFL) strain was increased and ATiFL injury occurred due to increased talar eversion. In human subjects performing a similar movement, the highest strains also occurred in the ATiFL and ADL. The models showed that ATiFL strain was positively correlated with ankle eversion, but eversion decreased strain in the ADL. Finally, the consequence of eversion on ATiFL strain was confirmed in the first cadaver study that consistently generated high ankle sprains in the laboratory.
