Kamiar Aminian (M.S. Elec. Eng.: 1982, Ph.D Bio.Eng: 1989) is a Professor of medical instrumentation and Director of The Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement (LMAM) of EPFL. His expertise in wearable systems monitoring has been internationally recognized by more than 170 scientific papers, 300 conference publications, 11 patents and numerous keynotes and invited lectures around the world. He is the pioneer for gait analysis using inertial sensors. His research focuses on methodologies for human movement monitoring and analysis in real world conditions mainly based on wearable technologies, with an emphasis on daily activity and sport. He is a co-founder of the spin-off company (Gait Up) which started in 2012 in the field of wearable technology and movement analysis. He was the President (2012-2014) of the 3D Analysis of Human Movement (3D-AHM) group (a technical group of international society of biomechanics) and the chairman of the 13th Symposium of 3D-AHM. He is a Senior member of the IEEE society, the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), the European Society for Movement Analysis in Adults and Children (ESMAC), the International Society of Posture & Gait Research (ISPGR), the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) and the Swiss Society for Biomedical Engineering (SSBE) and the Swiss Science Sport Society (4S).
