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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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).
