We have a new temporary team member! Florian Kastner is participating as a trainee in the Children`s Knees Project during July. Before starting the last year of his studies at secondary school, he is greatly supporting the Children´s Knees team in terms of processing motion capture data. Stay tuned for more news about our Project.
From the 29th to the 31st of March the 10th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Biomechanics (DGfB) was held at the Medical University of Hannover (Germany). Caterine Schwab presented a poster dealing with our reliability analysis and the dependency of reliability by different hip joint center estimation techniques (for details see our publication […]
On the 15th of March the project partners of the Children’s Knees Study once again met to discuss important steps in the project and to talk shop about complicated biomechanical analysis stuff (what researchers do usually). The meeting took place at the Institute of Sport Science of Vienna. As our project comes into the final stage the […]
Great news volks! A paper dealing with the reliability of our 3D kinematic measurement methods was accepted for publication in the Journal of Gait & Posture. The title of our lovely paper is: Within-assessor reliability and minimal detectable change of gait kinematics in a young obese demographic. A link to the full text will be provided […]
He is the head of the Gait Analysis Laboratory of the Orthopedic Hospital Vienna-Speising. As an active researcher he has a vast experience in the field of clinical movement science. His main working field is gait analysis with patients with orthopedic or neuro-orthopedic related disorders. Currently he is involved in several research projects financed by different national […]
On the 5th of October the project partners of the Children’s Knees Study met at the Medical University of Vienna. After a short introduction of the new members the project progress as well as future prospects were discussed. In addition, the dissemination road map was refined. The next project meeting will take place in March 2017 […]
On Friday, 30. September 2016 Dr. Brian Horsak presented the paper “Intra-tester reliability of three-dimensional kinematics in obese children and adolescents” at the 25th annual ESMAC meeting in Seville, Spain.
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 […]
is junior researcher at the University of Applied Sciences, Department of Physiotherapy and the Institute for Sciences and Services in Health. She gained experience in motion analysis and biomechanical investigations during her Healthcare and Rehabilitation Technology study at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Vienna and during the practical work for her master Thesis in […]
