Sheffield Café Scientifique

We meet on the first Monday of each month in the cafe-bar area of the Showroom Cinema in Sheffield - except when it's a bank holiday or if there's another event at the Showroom, in which case we meet the following Monday. We start at 7.00 pm and are usually finished before 9.00 pm. We hope to see you there for interesting debate and discussion on all aspects of science and technology.

Cafe Scientifique Sheffield

It's just the way I walk
Gait analysis is concerned with how we walk and run.
Measuring gait can both help with health problems and enhance athletic performance.

The Centre for Sports Engineering Research at Sheffield Hallam University has recently developed several  low cost systems for analysing gait.

This talk is about the goals of gait analysis and a review of associated technologies that can be used both in and out of the lab.
