Biomechanical modelling and clinical assessment data gathering with technological innovations towards movement restoration and sports performance for people with disabilities


The Proposal reflects our approach towards data gathering based on functional diagnoses for the disabled i. e., amputees and spinal cord injured subjects (shoulder, spine, hips, knees, ankle), metabolic and neurologic changes thus characterizing the long term outcome of spinal cord injury (SCI) during physical activity, in particular related to parathletes. Innovation is emphasized by: fitness/health equipment in neurological disorders i.e, Paralympics, wheelchair aided sports, rugby, etc.; putting evidence into practice through quantitative measurement systems for the clinic, implementing apps and disseminating knowledge through cloud computing. Movement analysis of walking, prehension, dynamic balance, joint loading during wheelchair motion will be performed on paralympic sports. (AU)
