Yoichiro Sato received a Philosophy of Doctor degree in Education from Human Movement Science course at Hokkaido University, Japan, in 2016. His main areas of research are in biomechanics and motor control as it relates to activities of daily living such as walking and sit-to-stand motion in healthy young adults, as well as biomechanics and prevention interventions of the fall in the elderly. He currently researches biomechanics of walking in healthy young adults using experiments and model simulations. Furthermore, he started an investigation into the biomechanics of the single leg standing in healthy young and elderly, which was supported by Grants-in-Aid for scientific research expenses. These studies would contribute to the wellbeing of the elderly.
