Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to capture and analyse kinematics and other parameters of human motion analysis. The course will demonstrate the use of state of the art technological devices and equipment such as the Optoelectronic Motion Capture System, The EMG and the Metabolic device.

Subject of course


Die Vorbesprechung ist am Montag den 18. 03. 2024 um 11:00 Uhr im Hörsaal GM 8/9 (TU Wien, Getreidemarkt 9, Maschinenbaugebäude BD, Stiege 4, 2. Stock, Hörsaal GM 8/9; ehemaliger Seminarraum BD 02A).


In this course students will learn how to use systems for capturing of human motion (Motion capture), body signals (EMG), metabolic parameters (spirometry) and to process and analyze the data.
