Scientific work

Isolating the unique and generic movement characteristics of highly trained runners.

Human movement patterns are a composition of unique and generic movement characteristics. Unique characteristics highlight those aspects that are specific to any given individual, while generic characteristics highlight aspects that are common to all individuals. Unique and generic characteristics can be isolated by applying layer-wise relevance propagation to an artificial neural network that was trained to recognize individuals based on their movement patterns.

Individual running pattern

The aim of this study was to test the similarity of running patterns of elite athlets. The study was designed to have a very similar situation, with a flat course and similar running speed. This study is currently under review in frontiers. If you are interested in the code and the data, please send me an email

The code to analyse the sample data is written in matlab version 2018a:
