Sharing Biomechanical Data
There is a growing interest in, and need for, large datasets to answer a multitude of basic and clinical research questions including: exploratory associations and mechanisms, long-term changes, and effectiveness of treatment. These datasets exist in the osteoarthritis field, but are limited to mainly imaging, biomarkers, symptoms, and simple measures of physical function. While joint- and whole body-biomechanics are known to play an important role in osteoarthritis pathogenesis, yet no large cohort study to-date includes these important outcomes. This workshop will address the need for large, multisite biomechanics datasets, and highlight the challenges and opportunities associated with their development.
