Usability testing for analysis of three-dimensional knee kinematics during gait

Different pathologies such as osteoarthritis (OA) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture have been shown to alter knee kinematics during gait; this implies that gait analysis may be used to distinguish between different pathologies, measure their progression and evaluate the value of different treatments.

Low back pain (LBP) during pregnancy: an exploration of biomechanical precipitating factors using non-invasive telemetric sensing of gait and everyday physical activities

  Research Group: Nursing and Health
Over two-thirds of women experience LBP during pregnancy, with symptoms typically increasing as pregnancy advances1. Women often have a history of simple LBP, and continue to experience symptoms after birth2, which directly adds to the substantial cost associated with LBP in the general population3,4. Read more

Wearable Energy Harvester from Human Gait

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The value of the global wearable electronics market is expected to exceed £6.4 ($8) billion in 2018 with more than 130 million units manufactured globally. Read more

Modern human variation as a model for locomotor evolution in ancestral hominins

The transition to terrestrial bipedalism represents a defining episode in the history of our species. Understanding how, when, and why upright bipedalism evolved in hominins requires the biomechanics of fossil organisms to be analysed. Read more

Biomechanics and activity analysis in the wild

Project Overview. Movement analysis and recording in humans has been confined to dedicated gait and motion capture facilities, but this only records movements for a single part of one day in an unusual environment. Read more

Understanding the Neurobiology of Parkinson's and related diseases

Background. The world-leading Parkinson's and Related Diseases Research Group based at the Brain and Mind Centre in the University of Sydney is providing an exciting opportunity for a PhD student scholarship. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) The biomechanics and evolution of quadrupedal gaits

Quadrupedal gaits are the commonest form of locomotion in tetrapods in size ranges from the tiny insectivore Etruscan shrew at less than 2 g to the giant dinosaur Argentinosaurus at more than 80 tonnes. Read more

Human Motion Analysis using Computer Vision and Deep Learning

Analysis of human motion is implicitly or explicitly required in many areas such as healthcare, sports, video surveillance, body-based user interfaces and computer games and animation. Read more

Investigating the effects of a training aid on golf putting mechanics

Please note this is a MPhil project. Golf is a popular recreational activity as well as an elite sport. It’s relatively low musculoskeletal and particularly cardiorespiratory demands make it an effective medium for maintaining exercise and mobility in the elderly population. Read more
