Human Movement Bioengineering

Research activities:

Human Movement Bioengineering

  • Developing biomechanical tools which allow a better understanding of the impact of training programs or clinical interventions on people's suffering of diabetes, stroke, rheumatic diseases, Parkinson's disease, flat or cavus foot, maxillary transverse discrepancy, fragile X syndrome
  • Developing markerless motion capture software application able to collect data also underwater
  • Developing systems for simultaneous acquisition of motion capture, ground reaction forces and plantar pressure data during gait
  • Developing finite element models of the diabetic foot driven by the gait analysis data for the internal stresses and insoles simulation
  • Neuromusculoskeletal modeling (Opensim and CEINMS) applied to diabetes, Parkinson's and ACL injury
