posted on 02.06.2019, 22:56 by LACHLAN BRIAN MCMILLAN
This thesis examines how day-to-day physical activity can influence the health of our bones throughout ageing. This thesis has used a range of wearable devices and analysis techniques to calculate a range of metrics relevant to our daily activity levels, from the intensity of activity, to the impact forces experienced by the body. This thesis culminates in a now patented prototype wearable device able to calculate the forces experienced by bones, during various forms of physical activity and exercise.
