Hi Yannis

Prof Jim Richards here from University of Central Lancashire here. I run a Movement Analysis Lab here. Always looking for further collaborative links.

Hello Prof. Richards,

are you using jumping platforms i.e Leonardo (jumping mechanography) for measuring the objective parameters of movement?

Best regards

We are doing some work on hip protectors but this is at a very ealy stage. It is an area we may expand upon in the future.

I have examined a few PhDs on falls also.
