Through the Physiotherapy Study Program, the Faculty of Nursing, Hasanuddin University (FKEP UNHAS), held a guest lecture featuring an international speaker from Niigata University, Prof. Masayoshi Kubo, Ph.D (Department of Physical Therapy Niigata University of Health and Welfare, Niigata, Japan). The guest lecture with the theme “Motion and Gait Analysis” took place at the IPTEKS Building on Tuesday (21/2) and was attended by 150 participants, consisting of lecturers and students of the Physiotherapy Study Program.
The event was officially opened by Syahrul Said, S.Kep., Ns., M.Kes., Ph.D. the Deputy Dean for Academic and Student Affairs. He expressed his gratitude for the attendance of the speakers and the team at UNHAS to meet with the academic community of the Faculty of Nursing and share his knowledge and experience in his expertise in Physical Therapy.
In his presentation, Prof. Masayoshi Kubo, Ph.D., generally provides an overview and explanation related to “Kinematic Analysis Simplified,” which is explained in the material application of 2D motion analysis systems and 3D motion analysis systems used to analyze coordination patterns of human body motion functions, such as muscle bones when performing specific movements while walking. He also explained the utilization of the AI-based OpenCap cloud server (Artificial Intelligence), which uses algorithms to automatically calculate skeletal movements and musculoskeletal forces. In its application, Kinematic analysis functions in analyzing the motion of the human body in detail, as in the movement of bones and muscles as a whole from toe to head when a particular activity is made.
