Trial Protocol presented at the 22. Sportwissenschaftlicher Hochschultag of the German Society of Sport Sciences in Mainz

David Artner presented the Children’s Knees Study at the 22. Sportwissenschaftlicher Hochschultag of the German Society of Sport Sciences in Mainz. In the course of the working group ‘Movement, Walking & Running’, the trial protocol with focus on the biomechanical aspects of the project was introduced to the audience.

Trial registry confirmed

The Children’s Knees trial design was registered in the trial registry database of Clinical Trials under the registration number NCT02545764. The study can be found on clinicaltrials.gov.

Brelomate at ICCHP

The 15th International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs (ICCHP) took place on July 11th – 12th, 2015 at the Johannes Kepler University Linz. Our team took the opportunity to present the project Brelomate at the conference, which provides a unique platform for end users,researchers, developers and practitioners. ICCHP has been attended by more than 400 […]

ICAD 2015 Graz, Austria

Today (July 8th, 2015) begins the first of three days of the ICAD Conference in Graz, Austria. Our SONIGait team will be presenting to the scientific community the results of our pilot test for the first SONIGait prototype.

Staircase construction and speed measurement system implemented

To allow the measurement of ground reaction forces during stair walking, a special staircase element was constructed. This element can be mounted directly on one of the force plates and together with the staircase of the Rehabilitation Center Weißer Hof builds the final staircase that will be used during the whole biomechanical study. A self- […]

Biomechanical Setup moving forward

The development of the biomechanical measurement setup is constantly moving forward. A proper staircase construction was acquired from the Rehabilitation Center Weißer Hof in Klosterneuburg and will be used for all upcoming gait analyses at the Biomechanics Laboratory of the USZ Vienna. The first staircase element will be placed directly on one of the force […]

Project Presentation in front of NFB funding authority

On May 4th 2015 Dr. Brian Horsak presented the Children’s Knees project in front of the management board of the NFB and other scientists who are working on projects funded by the NFB Life Science Call 2013. The aim of this meeting was to share the scientific work with colleagues from different professions and maybe […]
