Description of research activities:   Human mobility biomechanics (kinematics and kinetics of human movement) is Dr. Kwon's main research area. Special emphasis is on fall prevention in the elderly and the biomechanics of the assistive walking devices such as the walking poles. Sport biomechanics (performance enhancement, injury prevention) in general is also Dr. Kwon's interest area.
Keywords:  Biomechanics, kinematics, kinetics, human mobility, gait, sports performance, injuries, fall prevention
