Brian Horsak having a look at the lab at the KU Leuven

Research visit at KU Leuven

This week Brian Horsak visited Prof. Ilse Jonkers and her “Human Movement Biomechanics Research Group” at the KU Leuven in Belgium. This trip was financed by the Erasmus+ Staff training program. During his stay in Leuven, Brian visited a total of three Biomechanics Labs of the KU Leuven and had some very interesting discussions with […]

Austrian Science Fund (FWF)

Follow-up project granted!

A follow-up project to our Children’s Knees project, which we have submitted to the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) in 2017, was accepted. This is awesome news! The project is entitled: “Validity of several non-invasive hip joint center estimation methods for clinical gait analysis in a population of overweight and obese children and adolescents” The primary […]

Gait & Posture – Paper accepted

Great news! Another paper dealing with the reliability of our 3D kinematic measurement methods and the effect of different hip joint center estimation methods was accepted for publication in the Journal of Gait & Posture. The title of our lovely paper is: Is the reliability of 3D kinematics of young obese participants dependent on the […]

Children´s Knees Team Update

  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 […]
