Gait and posture analysis
Gait and posture analysis including surface electromyography to assess patients affected by diabetes, post-stroke, rheumatic diseases, lower limb injuries, bilateral and mono lateral crossbite and spine related pathologies, or healthy subjects [more info].
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].
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].
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].
Development of integrated systems for simultaneous acquisition of motion capture, ground reaction forces, plantar pressure and surface electromyography signals during gait [more info].
