Los esguinces de tobillo tienen una incidencia elevada en personal militar. Una mala recuperación conduce habitualmente a una cronicidad de la lesión y a recidivas. El Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) ha utilizado la aplicación de análisis de movimientos Kinemov/IBV para estudiar la funcionalidad del tobillo en militares de la Unidad Militar de Emergencia (UME) con antecedentes de esguinces. Al comparar la cinemática del tobillo lesionado con el sano en un salto monopodal se ha encontrado una limitación de la flexión plantar en la fase previa al apoyo. Este hallazgo indicaría la existencia de secuelas funcionales en tobillos teóricamente recuperados. Los resultados del estudio muestran que la información proporcionada por un estudio de movimientos podría ayudar a identificar alteraciones funcionales del tobillo y orientar una mejor recuperación y evitar problemas futuros.

Knowing the most important aspects that generate a satisfactory user experience among the potential users of a product, and the decision-making process involved in a purchase is key to guaranteeing success. In order to understand these aspects and how they are perceived by the specific demographic profiles to which the product is aimed, it is essential to listen to the voices of the consumers themselves. People-Oriented Innovation provides a validated methodology to include people in all phases of the development process, turning the target consumer of the product into an active resource that generates value for companies.

 

The Master’s Degree in Clinical Biomechanical Assessment was created in 2014 as a result of collaboration between the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV) and the Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV). Six editions and 220 students later, we look back to reflect on and assess the aspects that have made it possible for us to continue to be a benchmark in quality biomechanical training, at home and abroad.

The Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV), as an expert in the field of occupational ergonomics, has wide experience in the identification of verification and selection criteria for tools that can be used by manufacturers in the design thereof, and by consumers when making a purchase decision. The latest work carried out in this regard, developed in collaboration with the CEMA Foundation (Labor Foundation for Cement and the Environment), has consisted of the preparation of a guide to simplify both the ergonomic assessment of the hand tools that are most used in the sector (jackhammers, water jets, mallets and bars) and the improvement of the workplaces associated with them.
