Workshop on Developing a low-cost Portable Gait System

November 28th, 2008
The University of Melbourne, Australia.


A one day workshop on Developing a low-cost Portable Gait System will be held on Friday 28th of November at the University of Melbourne, Australia. This is organised  by ISSNIP (ARC Research Network on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks, and Information Processing) and is aimed at encouraging technical discussions on current technology, bottle necks and challenges to obtain a viable portable gait analysis system. It is primarily aimed at those who are interested in the development of instrumentation and will also include some oversight into clinical aspects of gait analysis. It is an opportunity to meet technicians/engineers/researchers to discuss their findings and discuss how we can work together.

 A preliminary timetable is given below but is subject to change. Registration is free and lunch is included. Due to limited numbers, registration is essential so please indicate your intention to attend via email to  tharshan (act) ee (dot) unimelb (dot) edu (dot) au.
