Design and Testing of Apparatus for Weight Bearing 3D Ultrasound Shear-Wave Elastography of the Foot

Project number: 
UA Department of Biomedical Engineering
Academic year: 
Design, fabrication and validation testing of a platform, servo motor device, and the software to collect 3D scans of the stiffness of the ligaments supporting the arch of the foot using ultrasound shear wave elastography. The platform will accommodate feet of various sizes and patients with variable difficulty with prolonged standing. The servo device will hold the ultrasound probe and scan the foot at a user selected speed. The ultrasound data will be post-processed to create a 3D model of the stiffness of the arch supporting ligaments.
