Advanced Statistical Analysis of Biomechanical Time Series: Principal Components Analysis, Functional Data Analysis & Statistical Parameter Mapping
Date: Saturday, 7th July 2018
Time: 13:30 – 16:30
Location: Stanley Quek Lecture Theatre, Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, 152 – 160 Pearse Street, D02 R590, Dublin 2
Speakers: Todd Pataky (Kyoto University, Japan), Mark Robinson (Liverpool John Moores University, UK), Drew Harrison (University of Limerick, Ireland), John Warmenhoven (University of Sydney, Australia)
The purpose of this seminar is to present an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of the most commonly used full-trajectory analysis techniques in biomechanics (Principal Components Analysis, Functional Data Analysis, and Statistical Parameter Mapping), discuss the purpose, advantages and limitations of these techniques, and present applications of how these techniques can be applied to kinematic and kinetic data from both healthy and clinical populations. By the end of this seminar, audience members should be able to identify the most appropriate technique(s) for use with their dataset and have a working knowledge of the strengths and limitations of the various techniques under consideration.
Attendance fee: There is no charge for attendees registered for the World Congress of Biomechanics – please give your full name as used for your WCB registration when you book your ticket so we can verify this. For non-conference attendees, there is a nominal charge of €10 which will be collected at the registration desk on the day.
