THE ESTIMATION OF LOWER LIMB MUSCLE FORCES DURING HUMAN LOCOMOTION TO IMPROVE FUNCTION, PERFORMANCE AND INJURY REHABILITATION.
Grant number: LP110100262 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015
The purpose of this project is to advance current understanding of muscle function during human locomotion. The most significant outcome will be the development of novel computational tools that can play a pivotal role in the healthcare industry through the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders.
