Applications developed by IBV
Originally, Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) made technological development compatible with research activities. Therefore, products are often modified to become usable for technical assessment and suitable for industrialization, when they were developed to respond to an instrumental need in the first place. IBV biomechanical applications such as software or instrumental techniques applications analyze and evaluate a variety of human activities and endow the most advanced techniques to those interested, facilitating the application of IBV knowledge.
Currently, IBV counts with over 2,500 users of technological applications (software and instrumental) distributed in Spain and Latin America. Most transferred systems are integrated into Disability Assessment Centers, Healthcare Insurance Companies, Hospital Rehabilitation and Otolaryngology Services, Faculties of Medicine, Faculties of Sport and Physical Activity Sciences, High Performance Centers, Schools of Physiotherapy, Orthopedic companies, Foot Clinical Units, Podology Centers and other private companies.
One of the most in-demand services of IBV is the assessment on design, building and start up of laboratories (Movement Analysis and Disability Evaluation, among others). When starting up a laboratory, experts are trained with this aim and protocols and work methodologies of the IBV are transferred to be included as assessment and long-term training models.
