Preserving and enhancing human motor functioning is a modern society’s strategic aim: governments are concerned with the improvement of human health & wellbeing and with the achievement of personalised healthcare, prevention and early diagnosis, healthy aging, sustainability of chronic diseases. In the last decades, science and technology have played a remarkable role in pursuing this goal; however, the knowledge of human motor functioning and of the effects of related medical interventions is still inadequate.
 
Efforts must be made to strengthen our multi-scale understanding of the human locomotor system’s structure and functioning and to develop scientific methodologies, which can be easily implemented into professional practice. It is thus necessary to integrate the cultural heritage of old and on-going research programs with the development of an innovative scientific approach.
 
In order to solve the above-described problems, this trans-domain inter-university Centre was founded, which, focusing on human movement sciences, could connect researchers to professional associations (medical, ergonomic and sport companies), service providers, policy makers, and industry.

A system that shows such reproducibility would be of high value. Based on the partners’ own experience, a common protocol was defined in order to create multicentric research based on low-cost equipment that would be available at each partner premises. Next to this international and multicentric validation work, the aim is to produce one publication in an international journal. Victor Sholukha (ULB) and Serge Van Sint Jan (ULB) will present a data collection system based on the Kinect sensor and customized software (including data smoothing and optimization) to produce scientifically meaningful results from this easily available hardware. This system could be a first option to organize a multicentric reproducibility study that would aim to determine if such system would show a good inter-center reproducibility during analyzing of specified tasks. 10.00 Break10.15 General Assembly Junior Keynote speaker 11.15 “Portable cardiac monitoring using ballistocardiography: from space research to clinical applications” – Jeremy Rabineau (ULB).12.30 Lunch Free communication 13.30 “The effect of ankle and hindfoot malalignment on foot mechanics in patients suffering from post-traumatic ankle osteoarthritis” – Paul-André Deleu (LYON1)13.50 “Analysis of spatial parameters during gait with magneto-inertial and infrared proximity sensors” – Rachele Rossanigo (UNISS)14.10 “Anatomical variations of the temporo-mandibular joints (TMJ) and implication in TMJ motion representation” – Gael Bescond (ULB) 14.20 “The influence of neck and thoracic spine curvatures on musculoskeletal disorder related upper limb biomechanics parameters” – Aurelie Tomezzoli (LYON1)14.30 “Two dimensional markerless gait analysis protocol for estimating the sagittal lower limb joint kinematics with a single RGB-D camera for clinical applications” – Diletta Balta (UNISS)14.50 “Gait monitoring using non-dedicated sensors” – Nahime Al Abiad (LYON1)15.00 Break and Closing words by the President Bohnes 2020 BrusselsDownload
