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.
February 11, 2020 – Lancet Neurology journal article out Long-term unsupervised mobility assessment in movement disorders.
This Personal View paper (co-authored by Atash Atrsaei PhD student at LMAM) highlights the potential of wearable-based unsupervised monitoring to provide more ecologically and meaningful information to patients than the supervised data acquired in the traditional clinical setting, which in turn can provide researchers with more accurate, granular, and disease-specific measures.

6th May 2019 – IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics article out personalised approach for real-world gait estimation
Abolfazl Soltani at LMAM in collaboration with industry designed a personalised model which took unique gait style of each subject into account to estimate the speed from a wrist sensor. Results demonstrated that the personalized model provided similar performance as GNSS. The study was published online in IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics.
