Abstract

This editorial pays tribute to the work of Professor John P. Paul and his team at the University of Strathclyde in the 1960s and ’70s, and subsequently by the Strathclyde Rehabilitation Engineering Group, as featured in the journal Medical Engineering & Physics. It also includes a consideration of the nature of full biomechanical analysis of movement and how it can be mathematically modelled and physically recorded, the different approaches taken by Paul's and Winter's groups, respectively, and what a full biomechanical model should include in the future. The article also attempts to signpost the reader to future developments in the field, and how the techniques pioneered by Paul in the 1960s may influence Clinical Biomechanics and Rehabilitation in the years to come.
