Dylan Kobsar

Dr. Dylan Kobsar is an Assistant Professor of Neuromechanics in the Department of Kinesiology at McMaster University. His research is aimed at making biomechanics and human movement analyses more accessible and real-world relevant. Specifically, this work focuses on the use of wearable inertial sensors, optical motion capture, force platforms, and data analytics to help track musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., osteoarthritis), injuries, and performance. His research laboratory is located within the Ivor Wynne Centre at McMaster University. However, much of his research takes place outside of this space in close collaborations with partners at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, where he works with the clinical staff and surgeons to help support the treatment of older adults with osteoarthritis.
