Dr. Deluzio’s work in Providence Care involves assessment of a new markerless motion capture camera system his lab is developing to assess movements in both healthy abled adults as well as persons post-neurological injury.
Kevin J. Deluzio, received his BASc (1988, Mathematics and Engineering), MASc (1990, Mechanical Eng), and PhD (1997, Mechanical Eng) from Queen’s University. After completing his master’s degree he spent three years with DuPont Canada (1991-1994). He received post-doctoral training at the Orthopaedic Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Deluzio began his academic career at Dalhousie University in 1999 as one of the first faculty members of the new School of Biomedical Engineering, with a cross-appointment in the Dept. of Surgery. He established the Dynamics of Human Motion Laboratory where his research focussed on the investigation of the biomechanical factors of knee osteoarthritis and its treatment. He is currently the Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and Professor in the Dept. of Mechanical and Materials engineering at Queen’s University.
He is interested in both non-surgical interventions aimed at slowing progression of knee osteoarthritis, and the evaluation and design of total knee replacements. Dr. Deluzio’s work in quantitative human motion analysis combined with pattern recognition techniques provides the means for objective and sensitive measurement of joint function. Dr. Deluzio has served on the executive of both the Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society and the Canadian Society for Biomechanics.
