A successful Movement Analysis Summer School 2017

Between 9 and 11 August, 2017, the first Movement Analysis Summer School was successfully held in cooperation with the Physiotherapy Program of the Bildungszentrum Gesundheit Basel-Stadt (BZG) in Münchenstein. During the three days, 9 students and 5 professors from various Swiss universities, and 8 persons working in the area of movement analysis had a chance to get to know the several systems of Kistler, Prophysics, Simi Motion and Technaid and test them extensively. In additional lectures the participants got an introduction about the possibilities of data analysis. For example, Christine Martindale from the Machine Learning & Data Analytics Lab of, the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, showed how movement data can be analyzed using self-learning algorithms, or Vinzenz von Tscharner explained how signal entropy is used in the Human Performance Lab at the University of Calgary to detect movement patterns.

The conclusion is that many of the participants would like to have further similar events, since there is a growing need to use the results of the movement analysis research in easy-to-use measuring systems in daily clinical or sport applications.
