Motion in focus: biomechanical measuring systems

Dear Sir or Madam,

In many fields – even apart from diagnostics and therapy – it may be interesting to understand the human musculoskeletal system and make it visible in a non-invasive way. Biomechanical measuring systems make such a holistic analysis possible. Get to know what types of these measuring systems there are, how they work and what Gollum from the Lord of the Rings has to do with them in the current Topic of the Month.

Have a bright week,

Julia Unverzagt

This May the Topic of the Month at is all about biomechanical gait and posture analyses.
