Brelomates’ user driven innovation & user-centered design is featured as best practise on the Open Innovation Platform launched by the Austrian Government. Thank you very much!
Barbara Pobatschnig left our research group by end of July. She will focus her research in a project at the Gait Laboratory of the Orthopedic Hosipal Speising which aims at improving the function of lower arm prostheses. We would like to thank Barbara for her great contribution to our project and wish her all the […]
Great news! Our submitted abstract “Intra-tester reliability of three-dimensional kinematics in obese children and adolescents” has been accepted for the 25th annual meeting of the European scientific society for clinical gait and movement analysis (ESMAC), Spain, Sevilla, 29 September – 1 October 2016 (http://esmac2016.com/). The oral presentation will be on Friday 30th September at the […]
We would like to welcome Tarique Siragy to our project as a junior researcher. He will greatly contribute to this project with his knowledge in the field of applied biomechanics and gait analysis.
Sadly but true David Artner left our research group with the end of march. He will now support the Research & Development Department of Adidas with his biomechanical knowledge and technical skills. The Children’s Knees research group wishes David all the best for his upcoming and very interesting challenges in research and development. Good news […]
On June 8th, 2016 Dr. Brian Horsak and DI.

The aim of the meeting was to share scientific work and exchange experiences with colleagues from different […]
On May 11th, 2016 the third consortial meeting together with Kabelplus took place at the Fachhochschule in St.Pölten. After a short overview about the past months and the timetable, there was a review on the focus-group meeting, which took place on April 14th, 2016. Furthermore, the members focused on user centered design, technical specifications, the […]
We are happy to announce the open-access publication of our SONIGait prototype, titled “SONIGait: a wireless instrumented insole device for real-time sonificationof gait” in the Journal of Multimodal User Interfaces. This article details both the hardware and software of the first prototype along with the result from our first pilot study. The article can […]
Last week, Prototype 2.0 of the SONIGait device was presented at the annual FFH (Forschungsforum der Österreichischen Fachhochschulen) in Vienna, Austria. During the presentation, we introduced to the public, for the first time, the developments that were made since the first prototype.
Great News. With 14/03/16 we started to capture data for assessing the intra-rater reliability of our 3DGA assessor. In total 10 participants are planned for this study, who will be assessed on two different days by the same assessor (B. Pobatschnig).
