Developing a process for the analysis of shapes to characterize human motion by using dynamic 3D surface scanning


APPLODYNSCA is an international research project that runs for two years and is funded by the EraSME(*) financing programme.

The aim of the project is to develop a process and tools for the (semi-)automatic analysis and feature extraction of dynamic 3D surface scans and the exploration of applications in shoe last design,  innovative bone movement and multi segment foot models, foot orthotics design and human gait analysis.

The research is performed by the following three research partners:
