Dynamics of the human body has potential to strongly influence the dynamic behaviour of the slender structures used and dynamically excited by humans. While the dynamic properties of passive (standing or sitting) people are relatively well researched, the dynamics of the human body in action (i.e. preforming various activities such as walking or jumping) is still under-researched area. The aim of this project is to study human body dynamics through experimental quantification of kinematics of the human actions in the Gait Laboratory and biomechanical modelling of people's bahaviour.
