Strength training

Kinetic and kinematic measurement during strength training exercise is the basis for inverse dynamic and modeling. The aim is to understand the loading conditions during training in oder to compare exercises and find evidence for rules and recommendation. Show details 

Clinical application: Assess gait variability parameters with inertial sensors (IMU)

This project focuses on the development and implementation of new gait analysis algorithms for use with our new inertial measurement units (IMUs), as well as their comparison with existing solutions and validation against motion capture data. Show details 

How does perturbing the knee modify kinematic variability and dynamic stability during walking?

Although humans are very good at maintaining balance while walking, how it is achieved is poorly understood. Our goal is to better understand dynamic balance control by describing responses to perturbations to the gait pattern, for example, by locking the knee joint during swing phase. In this project, you will assess the effects of knee locking on kinematic variability as well as dynamic stability during walking. Show details
