Motor Functional Evaluation from Physiology and Biomechanics to Clinical and Training Application


The understanding of the biology, biomechanics, and human locomotion and the use of this knowledge to improve rehabilitation, prescription of physical activity for health promotion and for sports performance are important for the science, not only for the gait but for every type of movement and exercises.

To be active and to practice exercises for health and quality of life are strong recommendations arising from science research. Though, the individual needs for exercising are far from being fully comprehended. This is an opportunity to put together the knowledge of the different fields to fill this gap, for instance, cortical and orbitofrontal activities affected by exercises and robotic management of walking disturb.

To practice exercises is one of the most valuable tools for health and to improve performance. It is up to science to provide the evidences for good, efficient, and safe practices.

We invite authors to contribute original research articles as well as review articles which are related to the study of the human movement.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Basic physiological and biomechanics studies applied to human rehabilitation and training
  • Motion analysis systems evaluation: the systems used to make the motion analysis, their reliability, and applicability in clinical and researches field
  • Randomized or controlled clinical trial to observe the effect of the treatment or training in specific group of patients or athletes
