Human movement biomechanics: measuring what cannot be measured

Human movement biomechanics, thanks to the combination of measurements and modelling techniques, allows to quantify those aspects, difficult or impossible to measure, that characterize the movement of an individual.
This approach allows to gather information for the quantitative evaluation of specific motor functions and to describe the motor strategy adopted by an individual to execute a given motor task.
Thanks to this information it is then possible to investigate a series of problems, ranging from the estimate of joint loads to possible damages at tissue level and even to motor control mechanisms and their changes in the presence of a pathology.
The aim of this presentation is to describe the state of the art in the field of measurement and modelling tools or the analysis of human movement that can be adopted in different contexts, ranging from specialist laboratories to daily clinical contexts and real life scenarios.
