2 Agenda Desired Outcomes – 11:30am Project Background – 11:35am  Needs  Specifications  Work Breakdown Structure Concept Generation – 11:45am Concept Selection – 12:05pm Systems Architecture – 12:20pm Risks/Feasibility – 12:40pm Next Steps

3 Desired Outcomes of Review Gain project understanding Receive input on selected concept Identify and discuss key risks:  Range of motion  Sensor size  Cost Decision to move forward to Detailed Design

4 Mission Statement The intent of this project is to design and build a test platform that will mimic the actions of a human spine. This design will incorporate movements in three dimensions, while being able to independently measure the angles and linear adjustments. The purpose of developing this platform is to validate the data from an existing measuring device in use at the Nazareth Physical Therapy Clinic.

5 Project Description Project Title: Project Title: Mechanical Spine Test Platform Primary Customer Primary Customer  Dr. Sara Gombatto  Professor at Nazareth College of Physical Therapy  Dr. JJ Mowder-Tinney  Director of Clinical Education Nazareth College Department of Physical Therapy  Physical therapy patients Secondary Opportunities Secondary Opportunities  Further spinal iterations

6 Background/Application Nazareth Physical Therapy Clinic motion capture system  Allows motion capture of PT patients in order to track progress Validation of existing motion captures Focus on spinal segments Secondary Application:  Portable Motion Tracking System calibration Source: Source:

7 Customer Needs Three tiered approach to group needs and limit scope  Base Plan  Aggressive  Outstanding Example Need: Must be moveable in distinct segments  Base Plan – Two distinct sections (Lower & Upper Lumbar)  Aggressive – Three distinct sections (Lower & Upper Lumbar, Thoracic)  Outstanding – Divide Thoracic segment into multiple segments Highest Ranked Needs – Base Plan Needs to be able to measure angle deviations for all sections relative to the section below it Use a tight tolerance for measurements Provide measurements in all three planes of space (x, y, z) Needs distinct sections of the spine to be able to move Needs to be adjustable lengthwise in order to simulate different size spines Movements needs to be lockable so that an accurate measurement can be read The height of the device has to be the level of a spine of a person standing in an upright position Needs to have a “zero” position for all sensors/joints

8 Engineering Specifications Correspond to highest ranked Customer Needs: SpecificationUnits Base Plan Value Aggressive Value Outstanding Value Must have a minimum tilt in all directions relative to the section below degrees +/- 20 Angle tolerancedegree+/- 0.1 Must have a tilt in all directions relative to the section below planes 3 (sagittal, transverse, frontal) Must be movable in distinct sections and a fixed base (pelvis) movable sections 2 (lower lumbar, upper lumbar) 3 (thoracic)Divided thoracic Should be able to fit all required ranges needed by customer vertically millimeters 30 - 150 for each lumbar segment 200 – 300 for thoracic segment Joint strengthFt - lbs Device must mimic a person standing in an upright position - Trochanterior Height millimeters750 - 1000 Device has mechanical "zero" positionYes/No Yes

16 Final Selection Criteria Used final engineering specifications as a basis for final selection criteria  Acted as a map to link specifications to device Added to list for clarity:  Lockability  Programming intensive  Software compatibility with DAQ

17 Final Concept - Electrical Measurement Devices - Angular  Rotational Inductor  2-axis tilt sensors Measurement Devices – Linear  Displacement Sensor DAQ  Multi-channel Computer Output Interface  Excel-based program
