Gait Variability for Predicting Individual Performance in Military-Relevant Tasks
(Virginia Tech, 2019-10-03)
Human movement is inherently complex, requiring the control and coordination of many neurophysiological and biomechanical degrees-of-freedom, and the extent to which individuals exhibit variation in their movement patterns ...
Applications of Motor Variability for Assessing Repetitive Occupational Tasks
(Virginia Tech, 2017-06-07)
The human body has substantial kinetic and kinematic degrees-of-freedoms, so redundant solutions are available for the central nervous system (CNS) to perform a repetitive task. Due to these redundancies, inherent variations ...
ILoViT: Indoor Localization via Vibration Tracking
(Virginia Tech, 2018-04-23)
Indoor localization remains an open problem in geolocation research, and once this is solved the localization enables counting and tracking of building occupants. This information is vital in an emergency, enables ...
Effects of Obesity and Age on Muscle Strength, Gait, and Balance Recovery
(Virginia Tech, 2016-04-27)
Obese and older adults are reported to have a higher rate of mobility limitation and are at a higher risk of fall compared to healthy-weight and young counterparts. To help identify potential mechanisms of these mobility ...
Toward understanding factors affecting falls among individuals who are obese
(Virginia Tech, 2015-05-22)
The prevalence of obesity is high in the United States. One of the many concerns with the high prevalence of obesity is its association with an increased risk of falls and subsequent injury. Thus, it is important to ...
