The differences in kinetic measurements of force, work, power, and torque are quantitativly observed between non-capacitated and capacitated sperm. Isomap, a nonlinear dimensionality reduction technique, is used to get higher resolution imaging data of the sperm videos. This allowed accurate calculations of spatial and temporal derivatives to calculate the kinetics of the flagella. The results showed no statistical significance between the kinetic measurements of non- capacitated and capacitated mouse sperm.
