Understanding human movement is a fundamental question in biomechanics and neurophysiology. The main limitation is the current inability to link the mechanisms taking place at the neurophysiologic level with those taking place at the musculoskeletal level in the intact human. Neuromusculoskeletal modeling is a potential way to fill this gap. Dr Sartori applies modeling and signal processing, in a translational approach, to understand healthy and pathological human movement and to develop intuitive human-machine interfaces for the proportional and simultaneous control of multiple degrees of freedom in orthotic and prosthetic devices.
