May 8, 2017 has been a special day for Massimiliano Pau, professor of Biomechanical Engineering and responsible of the Biomechanics and Industrial Ergonomics laboratory at the department of Mechanical, Chemical and Materials Engineering and his group of collaborators at the University of Cagliari.
The professor has been awarded during the 22nd RIMS (Rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis) Congress for the best presentation, showing a scientific project entitled “Are static and dynamic balance abilities correlated in People with Multiple Sclerosis?”.For the development of this work, quantitative techniques of motion analysis were used to explain the existing relationships between static and dynamic balance ability in subjects with Multiple Sclerosis.
The results will allow a focused selection of the tests to be performed on subjects with MS to check the progress of the disease by carrying out an accurate assessment of pharmacological and rehabilitation treatments effects.
Congratulations to prof. Pau for the great cutting-edge project!
