iToBoS participated in ESMAC 2022 conferences, that took place in Dublin, Ireland, from 19 to 24 of September 2022.
The purpose of ESMAC (the European Society for Movement Analysis in Adults and Children) is to stimulate and advance scientific knowledge, professional interaction and the exchange of ideas among Society members relating to movement analysis in adults and children in clinical and research settings. ESMAC is multidisciplinary by nature, mainly interacting clinical and bioengineering disciplines, and ranging from basic sciences to applied practices, including many backgrounds, such as orthopaedic surgeons, physiatrist, physiotherapists, human movement scientists, biomechanical and biomedical engineers. ESMAC’s main event is an annual scientific congress which is normally preceded by an instructional course for gait analysis and topic symposia.
ESMAC annual meeting aims to establish a European Clinical Practice Guideline for Gait Analysis with the objectives of improve the quality of clinical gait analysis (CGA), assure transparency of data collection and data interpretation, make data sharing easier, promote CGA as a clinical tool, increase the changes of insurance reimbursement for CGA, and facilitate task management of the gait labs.
The iToBoS project was presented through the lecture “Explaining Machine Learning Models for Age Classification in Human Gait Analysis”, done by Doctor Sebastian Lapuschkin, from Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, one of the partners of the iToBoS project.
