Kim receives North Carolina Biotechnology Center (NCBC) funding for kinesiology machine learning research

Professor Kim receives a collaborative research project funding with UNCG Kinesiology Department from North Carolina Biotechnology Center (NCBC) entitled “Optimization of a Precision Measurement Solution for a Tri-Axial Knee Arthrometer.”

This project aims to develop and optimize a sensor measurement system that will be integrated into the mechanical prototype of the knee arthrometer to obtain an accurate and repeatable assessment of knee joint laxity. The approach will be to rigorously test the measurement system against the gold standard of true knee joint motion. Successful completion of this work will pave the way for future feasibility testing with clinicians to confirm clinical utility and obtain final feedback. Professor Kim’s role in this project is to apply machine learning techniques to optimize the sensor parameter setting.
