Postural Stability During Standing Balance and Sit-to-Stand in Master Athlete Runners Compared With Non-Athletic Old and Young Adults

Great news, I have just had my second journal accepted to appear in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity (JAPA). I am really pleased that the work will soon be published. It forms part of my PhD work, bringing together motion capture (depth sensor) and mobility analysis to evaluate masters athletes. Of particular note is the acceptability by the community to utilise depth sensor technology as the 'gold standard'. This will hopefully spur other researchers to utilise marker-less technology over marker-based solutions. You can find the article here. The aim of the paper study was to compare postural sway during a series of static balancing tasks and during five chair rises between healthy young (mean (SEM) age 26(1)...

Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics - Paper Accepted and Published

Great news, my first ever journal paper has been accepted to appear in the Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI). I am over the moon and very pleased. The paper is the culmination of my PhD, bringing together motion capture, 3D feature representation, big data, little data and machine learning. J-BHI was choosen for submission as its aims and objectives fitted well with our work. The paper focuses on quantification of human motion to support clinicians in the decision-making process. We proposed a framework that automatically recognises and evaluates human mobility impairments using a depth sensor. The framework is composed of two parts. Firstly, it recognises motions, such as sit-to-stand or walking 4 metres, using feature representation techniques and...
