BADER Biomechanics Core

Headed by Dr. Scott Selbie of C-Motion, LLC, provides critical assistance and biomechanical resources that may not be otherwise available to partnering institutions.

It does this through site visits, training and support for ongoing projects and resolving software and hardware concerns at the military treatment facilities. One of the tools offered by C-Motion is Visual 3D, which makes it possible to measure and quantify movement collected by a 3D motion-capture system.

  • Systematic review equipment and experimental protocols in the MTF laboratories
  • Recommend standardized movement analysis protocols
  • Implement custom Quality Assurance Processes
  • Establish training and certification programs
  • Manage experimental data and analysis sharing by linking the Visual3D CMO file library with the PDMS to allow data mining across all BADER Consortium sites.

Core mechanics

The biomechanics core will collaborate with the MTFs to accomplish the following goals:

  • Implement data collection protocols consistent with MTF guidelines
  • Implement subject specific biomechanical model templates for the MTF and BADER projects
  • Implement written standards (checklists) for data collection protocols
  • Implement Visual3D processing pipelines for each project that will enable efficient and consistent data processing
  • Implement Visual3D reporting templates for each project
  • Enhance process and protocol management standards across MTF sites for new analysis routines and assessment metrics

Scott Selbie is currently the president and director of HAS-Motion which is affiliated with C-Motion which distributes Visual3D software. He completed doctoral studies at Simon Fraser University and subsequently worked for the National Institutes of Health with focus on biomechanical modeling and 3D reconstructions from medical imaging. Selbie oversaw the technology transfer of Move3D software from the NIH to C-Motion and its subsequent evolution into Visual3D.
