Actuation and sensing of ultrasonic guided waves in shin bone using shear wave acoustic emission sensors.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of ultrasound to assess the current state of the health of shin bones. Ultrasound will be sent along the length of both the shin bones of a volunteer, using a pair of sensors. Physical wave propagation parameters will be derived from the collected data. For this study: 1. We will ask you to briefly answer a list of four questions related to your physical activity and bone fracture history, 2. We will first measure your weight and height, 3. You will be asked to sit on a chair with legs resting comfortably on a stage, 4. We will then ask you to keep your legs below the knee free from garments, 5. We will also ask you to not wear shoes while we make the measurements, 6. We will position the sensors on your leg and acquire data, one leg at a time. Your participation will last for 35 minutes and includes only one study visit per volunteer.
