Human motion analysis is a recognised technique for accurately tracking locomotion and exercise, and it has been exploited in past decades for hundreds of studies in clinical, performance, and physiological research. Meanwhile, biomechanics, in particular musculoskeletal research, has made huge progress, achieving excellent results in terms of new instrumentation, robust computer models, medical image analysis, and established experimental methods. Medicine, sport science, prosthetics and orthotics, and other disciplines may now take advantage of original combinations between traditional motion analysis and most modern biomechanical results and techniques. We want to contribute to the development of this merging between these various competences and experiences, by selecting and publishing original work aimed at including advanced biomechanical analysis and instruments in motion analysis, or special motion analysis studies involving innovative biomechanical research. This can include in silico modelling, and in vitro and in vivo measurements. In other words, we are looking for studies in which Biomechanics and Motion Analysis sustain each other.
We thus invite you to submit your research on these topics, in the form of original research papers, methodological advances, mini-reviews, and perspective articles.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
