ALBERTO LEARDINI

He is Director of the Movement Analysis Laboratory, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli – Bologna (Italy). His initial research focused on methodological issues and clinical applications of gait analysis, including also three-dimensional videofluoroscopy, radiostereometry, and surgical navigation. He then received a DPhil at the University of Oxford on mechanics and prosthesis design of the ankle joint. He is now exploiting additive manufacturing and medical imaging for custom-design of orthotics and orthopaedic implants. He is author of 170 papers in peer-review journals (H-index 40; 9700 citations) and of 4 international patents.

He has been President of Siamoc, Technical Group 3-D Analysis of Human Movement, and Italian Digital Biomanufacturing Network. He is in the Steering Group of the International Foot & Ankle Biomechanics community (i-FAB) since the foundation, in the Research Committee of the European Foot and Ankle Society, and in the Scientific Board of the Weight Bearing CT Society. He is now President – Elect of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB).
