My name is Steven Jiang and I am undergraduate mechanical engineering student at the University of Alberta taking the biomedical option. I have so far completed my second year of engineering and am expecting to graduate in 2021. Currently, for the summer of 2019, I am working under the supervision of Dr. Hossein Rouhani.
Dr. Hossein Rouhani
My main project was assisting Karla Martínez in her development of wearable sensors that can used be used to measure muscle fatigue and ergonomic risk for musculoskeletal disorders. Wearable inertial sensor data will be compared to motion capture data in order to determine its accuracy and viability as a method to measure ergonomic risk. Electromyography (EMG) sensors that are attached to test subjects will be used to measure muscle fatigue. The end goal of the project is to uncover methods in reducing muscle fatigue and reducing risk of musculoskeletal disorders.
