Abstract

The biomechanics community have to date had limited success in communicating complex biomechanical data and analyses outside of their field. The authors have created an innovative prototype software tool to visualise objective dynamic movement data captured from older adults undertaking activities of daily living (ADLs). Evaluation of this tool has shown it to be a successful way of communicating the complexity of older adult mobility data in an accessible manner for non-biomechanical specialists and lay audiences.
