Sarcopenia Screening: Development of a Feedback-Augmented, Portable, Ultrasound Prototype
This project involves the design and fabrication of a 2nd generation prototype ultrasound stabilization arm augmented with computer-assisted feedback. Our team seeks to better control the orientation of the ultrasound transducer to control the operator-dependent factors that may influence image quality and tissue dimensions in clinical settings. This work will extend to multiple projects at GW and the DC VAMC.
