Project description

A new and interdisciplinary approach to motor
retraining using self-produced interactive sonic and musical feedback will be
developed. The underlying theory and methods will be tested in a study on self
induced running style alterations. In particular, we aim at showing that
impact severity, a biomechanical risk factor of running injuries, can be
lowered using interactive sonic and musical feedback.
