David Putrino is Assistant Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai, USA, and the Director of Rehabilitation and Innovation for the largest health network in New York. He explores cutting-edge technology and its implementaiton into the clinical practice of health professionals working to assist recovery from long-term conditions. He also leads a team in developing a world-class human performance center, working with athletes and military operators to understand the science of human performance. He has explored every available method of motion capture, and applied these methods to contexts with a very low-tolerance for error. This has resulted in a body of work that informs evidence-based recommendations about motion capture techniques for a variety of different applications, both in medicine and human performance.
