The top 10 cited papers in biomedical engineering

11 Mar 2013

The former editor of Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing, Jos Spaan, recently published a paper referencing the top 10 cited papers within the periods 2008–2009 and 2010–2011 [1]. It is interesting to note that five of these papers from the list describe ambulatory human motion tracking [2-6]. Specifically, four of them are related to work of former or present Xsens employees related to INAIL and University of Twente. Their work describes both fundamental tracking methods as well as a clinical protocols (ISEO and OUTWALK) and are the result of a flourishing scientific environment related to ambulatory movement tracking.
