Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement (LMAM)

The multidisciplinary research of the Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement aims on improving movement monitoring and analysis in real-world conditions, through the design of wearable systems and algorithms. We are particularly interested to characterise sport performances and pathologies affecting motor function.

The LMAM Laboratory is going to close at the end of november 2023, at the time of the retirement of Prof. Aminian.
