    Delsys Workshop at ISEK 2016 (July 5, 2016)

    Quality of Movement Measurement: Rethinking Research in the Era of Wearable Sensors

    When July 5 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    Where Hyatt Regency, 151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601 United States

    The workshop led by P. Contessa, Ph.D and J. Kline, Ph.D will focus on Quality of Movement Measurement (QMM), scientific instruments in use today, and why and how they are relevant to Movement Measurement Research.

    The workshop will open with a brief introduction on research-grade instruments and factors a researcher should consider.

    Expert speakers J. Richards, Ph.D (University of Central Lancashire) and J. DeFreitas, Ph.D. (Oklahoma State University) will present scientific data using the Trigno™ IM (EMG and IMU) sensor and dEMG system in research and clinical applications, with a focus on their role in constructing intervention strategies vital to QMM.

    Who should attend? Researchers that are interested in using research instruments to: 1) Look behind the traditional skeletal models, and 2) Look beyond the utility of sEMG signals to define new neuromuscular measurements in assessment and intervention strategies.

    Workshop Schedule (see flyer here)
