Ontario Biomechanics Conference 2024

The Nipissing Biomechanics and Ergonomics team travelled to the Ontario Biomechanics Conference (OBC) in May 2024. OBC highlights biomechanics research excellence within Ontario, and provides networking and presentation opportunities for students. Five Nipissing students presented their undergraduate and Master’s research during several poster sessions over the three days. Congratulations to all our student presenters!  

Michelle Campbell: Examining sex differences in chuck grip force regulation 

Hunter Carswell: Age affects the relationships between spatiotemporal and kinematics domains during treadmill gait.   

Emma McArthur: Effects of age on relationships between trunk kinematics and center of mass motion in the frequency domain during gait 

Grace O’Neill: Does dynamic postural stability during quiet standing, gait, and obstacle crossing change with age? 

Mike Travers: Hip, knee, & ankle kinematic variation during 30-second Wingate test.
