Aims of the Congress

To foster the development and clinical applications of instrumented movement analysis for: the study of pathophysiology of movement disorders, the prevention and functional diagnosis of diseases affecting the locomotor system, facilitating clinical decision making process and evaluating the efficacy of therapeutic and rehabilitation treatments.

Target groups

The SIAMOC congress is targeted to all professionals who are involved in human movement analysis for research, both biomedical and bioengineering, and clinical applications also during university education:

  • physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, physiatrist, neurologists, orthopaedic surgeons, paediatricians, geriatriciants, sport medicine physician
  • biomechanical, biomedical, rehabilitation, robotics, clinical engineers
  • physiotherapists, occupational therapists, prosthesists and orthotists, neurophysiopathology technicians
  • human movement scientists
  • psychologists, neuropsychologists

Main topics

  • Cortical and subcortical control of movements
  • Applications of movement analysis in neurology, orthopaedics and rehabilitation
  • Biomechanics and simulation of movement
  • Wearable systems, monitoring systems and actigraphy
  • Methodological developments: protocols, models and algorithms
  • Gait analysis & clinical decision making (for functional surgery, botulinum toxin, physiotherapy)
  • Outcome assessment
