Bio

Matt Brodie is a NHMRC EC Fellow with internationally recognised expertise using wearable devices to track human movements, developing bio-signal processing algorithms, and analysing ‘big data’ sets. Highlights include; the MacDiarmid Young Scientist of the Year Award (Future Science and Technology Winner); an International Ski Federation (FIS) Innovation Award; and a Museum exhibition displaying his wearable ‘fusion motion capture’ system. His research objectives are to untangle the complex web of interactions that prevent healthy aging. His main research area is “Wearable Devices for Reducing Falls in Older People and Clinical Populations with Balance Disorders”. Through collaborations he is using wearable sensors to track changing fall risk and prevent falls in older people, stabilise gait in people with Parkinson’s disease, and reduce the effects of contracture in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
