Foot biomechanics

Development of protocols for multiple assessment of multisegment foot kinematics kinetics and plantar pressure distribution. Development of foot finite element models. The main research application is diabetic foot prevention. [more info].

Markerless technology

Development of markerless motion capture software tools to collect underwater motion analysis data and out of water video with commercial cameras (e.g. GoPro cameras) [more info].

Sport

Evaluation of performance in several sports, including rugby, swim, basket, skateboard, volley [more info].

 

Biomechanical Tools

Development of biomechanical tools to provide either a better understanding of the impact of training programs/clinical interventions on pathologic subjects (e.g. diabetes, stroke and rheumatic diseases) or a better assessment of elite athletes’ performance [more info].
