Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada (www.queensu.ca) has been established as a Biomechanics Training Centre for clinicians, students, and academic researchers who are interested in skills training and potential research collaborations.
Dr. Kevin Deluzio
Dr. Deluzio's research involves the study of human locomotion to investigate the biomechanical factors of musculskeletal diseases such as knee osteoarthritis. He is interested in the design and evaluation of non-invasive therapies as well as surgical treatments such as total knee replacement. Dr. Deluzio’s work in quantitative human motion analysis combined with pattern recognition techniques provides the means for objective and sensitive measurement of joint function.
Dr. Qingguo Li
Dr. Li's research focuses on the development of bio-mechatronic systems for gait rehabilitation and mobility assistance applications. His research activities are in the following three areas: (1) energy efficient lower-limb wearable robotic devices for mobility assistance, (2) biomechanical energy harvesting, and (3) ambulatory systems for gait analysis and active surveillance. He is willing to work with researchers from economically developing countries (e.g. China) to strengthen their research capacities in the field of biomechanics.
