Walking in the lab and a real-world environment with Multiple Sclerosis

Our colleagues from Tel Aviv, the TASMC Mobilisers, studied the quality of walking of people with multiple sclerosis and healthy controls in two environments: a) a well-structured laboratory setting and b) during real-life, everyday walking using 24/7 monitoring.  During every-day walking, the patients took fewer steps, they walked more slowly, and the quality of their…

New publication on gait variability in Huntington’s disease

The expertise of our Mobilisers goes far beyond the Mobilise-D patient groups. Ultimately our findings should benefit anyone with mobility challenges, such as people suffering from Huntington’s Disease. Heiko Gaßner and colleagues explain more in their paper investigating gait variability as digital biomarkers of severity in Huntington’s disease. In this study, characteristic features of gait…

Technical validation training in Newcastle

The Mobilise-D technical validation training in Newcastle is happening this week (February 24-26th), and Mobilisers from Newcastle and Northumbria University are focused and ready to learn. With assistance from the Universities of Sassari and Sheffield, the Mobilise-D assessors will get a firm grasp on how to properly set up the necessary equipment and how to…

Technical validation training session

This January, researchers, academics and clinicians from all over Europe and Israel were welcomed to the Insigneo Motion Capture and Virtual Reality Laboratory at the University of Sheffield for a training session for all the universities and hospitals involved in Work Package 2 ‘Technical validation of a single sensor system’ of the Mobilise-D project. The…

Invited Mobilise-D Symposium at the Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics in Calgary, Canada

August 3rd 2019 an invited symposium titled “Inertial Measurement Units based methods for mobility assessment in real-world condition” was held at the Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) in Calgary, Canada. The aim of the symposium was to survey the most challenging methods, sensor configurations and techniques to detect walking bouts and estimate…
