Research seminars by Dr. Hossein Rouhani from University of Alberta organized by the BIOMEC Lab

The week from April 29th to May 3rd Dr. Hossein Rouhani, principal investigator of the Neuromuscular Control & Biomechanics Laboratory at University of Alberta (Canada), will visit the BIOMEC Lab. In the frame of this visit, the researcher will give two seminars: Seminar 1: Kinematics and kinetics assessment of multi-segment spinal column: Estimation and compensation of motion capture errors In-vivo measurement and interpretation of inter-vertebral angles and moments are important for clinical evaluations and developing injury prevention and rehabilitation strategies. Motion assessment of the human [...]
