“SPM for biomechanical skill assessment”

Todd Pataky

Associate Professor
Department of Bioengineering
Shinshu University Institute for Fiber Engineering

hosted by Daniel Callan


SPM inferences leverage random field theory (RFT), and since RFT is n-dimensional both SPM and RFT are applicable to a wide range of Biomechanics applications where 1D, 2D and 3D data are very common. This talk will describe describe how SPM/RFT can be used for sports skill assessment. Focus will be on highly skilled vs. amateur golf swing analysis as assessed with 2D univariate pressure distributions and 1D multivariate kinematics.
