Vision Statement

Biomechanics enables the analysis of whole-body human movement. Research encompasses many disciplines including health, sports, engineering, ergonomics and industrial applications.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
