Donald Hume

Location: Denver, CO
Major: B.S. Biomedical Engineering
Company: Vicon Motion Systems Inc.
Title: Application Engineer

Education/Career Path:

For my masters thesis I developed a computational framework that was built around a real-time derivation of the forward dynamics EMG-driven musculoskeletal model presented by Buchanan et. al (2004). The framework was developed in the C++ programming language. Motion capture was used, and coupled with the real-time server API, I was able to combine inverse dynamics calculations with muscle force estimations to provide quasi-static real-time total knee contact force estimations. I proposed the standing target matching paradigm as an excellent application for this tool, and presented preliminary data for three subjects

What are your daily responsibilities?

As an Application Engineer at Vicon Motion Systems, I perform on-site installation and training for customers. I work to troubleshoot problems that customers have with motion capture and peripheral hardware in life sciences and engineering applications. I also work to integrate our software into real-time mocap applications using the Vicon DataStream SDK in C++, MATLAB, and LabVIEW
