Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

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.
