    Students from Wyoming Valley West High School participated in hands-on demonstrations of sophisticated biomechanical measurement equipment as part of National Biomechanics Day at The University of Scranton.

    Equipment used in demonstrations included: three-dimensional motion analysis using a 12-camera kestrel motion analysis system; electromyography using an eight-channel NORAXON system and dynamometry using a Biodex System: and computerized dynamic posturography with a NeuroCom EquiTest.

    Demonstrations were led by University of Scranton Exercise Science and Sport Professor Bryon Applequist, Ph.D., Exercise Science Lab Coordinator Cheryil Demkosky and University exercise science students: Dominick Algeri, a junior from Massapequa, New York; Michael Chiapperino, a junior from Blauvelt, New York; Cristina Cacoilo, a junior from Edison Valley, New Jersey; Bridget Duffy, a senior from Danbury, Connecticut; Cesar Garcia, a senior from Ronkonkoma, New York; Dylan Kane, a junior from Blauvelt, New York; Haley Miller, a junior from Hawley; and Nicole Sanchirico, a senior from Marlton, New Jersey.

    Scranton was among the colleges across the nation that participated in the event intended to demonstrate biomechanics in various forms to high school students and teachers.

    Wyoming Valley West students participating were Jessica Almanzar, Emily Banik, Jillian Bonczewsi, Madison Bonnerwith, Nicole Boutanos, Rayn Bozek, Megan Brody, Hailey Cruikshank, Ciara Curry, Cameryn Forgash, Jared Grossman, Gladynette Hernandez, Zephany Houston-Lett, Emily Latoski, Mollie McFarland, Scott Nilson, Andrew Novrocki, Jesse Poluske, Anthony Severens, Jessica Shaver, Aiden Shymanski, Alima Tikhtova and Emilee Tripp. Teachers Rob Bonczewsi and Pat Heffron accompanied the students.

     

    University of Scranton Exercise Science and Sport Professor Bryon Applequist, Ph.D., and University exercise science students demonstrated state-of-the-art biomechanical engineering equipment to high school students as part of National Biomechanics Day.
