The two day series aims to:
- inspire the technical audience (engineers/biomechanists) to tackle the identified challenges, and to develop , test , and validate new metrics for free-living gait;
- encourage and persuade clinical audience of the great potential of using free-living gait monitoring in practice.
Feedback and discussion between technical and clinical world will be key in this mini-series to identify open questions/gaps and potential answers/solutions in order to make the measurement of gait in free-living context become useful and really part of clinical practice.
