Biography

Dr Oren Tirosh is an esteemed biomechanist, with extensive clinical and research experience in integrated human biomechanics. Oren specialises in movement analysis, wearable sensor technology, 3-dimensional (3D) gait, clinical gait analysis, gait variability and performance, and injury prevention. 10 years of practical experience in clinical gait analysis working in the gait laboratory at the Royal Children's Hospital and in the biomechanics laboratory at Motion.3D Pty Ltd engaging with athletes such as F1 driver Mark Webber, Australian high jumper and 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Eleanor Patterson, and Australian leading female marathon runner Sinead Diver. In addition, Oren has exceptional knowledge and experience in web based repository system development for gait analysis and orthopaedics.
In addition to working at Swinburne Oren consult at Melbourne Sports & Allied Health Clinic, South Yarra Spine and Sports Medicine clinic, and the Orthopaedic Unit at Western Health.




Research interests

Biomedical science; Sport Science

PhD candidate and honours supervision

Higher degrees by research

Accredited to supervise Masters & Doctoral students as Associate.

PhD topics and outlines

Biomechanics and Technology in walking and running: The project will involve innovative devices and procedures to improve walking and running, and to reduce the risk for injuries. It will also look at improving the analysis and interpretation of movement performance in sport.

Honours

Available to supervise honours students.

Honours topics and outlines

Inertial sensor technology to reduce ground impact during running: Tibial stress fractures are common injuries in runners. Runners with tibial stress fractures showed tibial peak positive acceleration (PPA) almost twice as large as healthy controls. Visual and Audio biofeedback of tibial PPA during running can be used as a method of gait retraining to reduce PPAs. This project will investigate this.

SMART Wheelchair: Utilising wearable sensor technology in wheelchair, and understanding human interaction with the wheelchair.
