Biomechanics, Inertial Measurement, Pressure Measurement

Clinical Biomechanics Assessment Seminar & Workshop

Our annual SCCB pre-conference workshop was held on Thursday 1st May at Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent.

The workshop had a great turn out of delegates from varying backgrounds within Biomechanics, and we would like to thank everyone for coming and making the workshop a great day.

This year, the workshop was exploring how the use of new and existing technologies can be used for clinical applications related to lower limb biomechanical assessment. We had live demonstrations and interactive presentations on pressure measurement technology from Tekscan, Inertial Motion sensor technology from APDM, sEMG from Delsys and Optical Spinal assessment from DIERS.

Again we were welcomed by Nachi Chockalingam and his staff at Staffordshire University and would like to thank them for helping us with our workshop.

Special thanks to Professor Jim Richards for facilitating the day and providing some excellent presentations, and also our speakers Marshall Kendall, Tekscan Inc., Matt Johnson, APDM Inc., Steven Lindley, Delsys Inc., and Wim Lambrechts, DIERS GmbH.
