Biomechanics

Dr Oren Tirosh is the director of Motion.3D recognised in clinical 3D gait analysis. Oren’s interest is in applied Biomechanics. After completing his degree in Physical Education and Sport Science, Oren obtained his Masters in Rehabilitation Therapy from Queens University, Canada. In canada Oren trained as a sprinter achieving the 4x200m 3rd place at the CIS Championships and 5th at the 60m OUA Championship. He then started his PhD studies at Deakin University, Melbourne, where he focused on gait biomechanics. Oren has been involved in gait research more than a decade and he is currently affiliated with Victoria University, The University of Melbourne, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, and the orthopaedic department at The Royal Children’s Hospital.

Exercise Physiology

Dr Simon Sostaric is recognised for his expertise in professional sport, human physiology research and clinical healthcare. Simon has an extensive understanding of human physiological extremes, having applied his skills and knowledge for over 20 years around the globe. Simon completed his PhD at Victoria University, and subsequently published ground-breaking research in the field of electrolyte regulation and skeletal muscle fatigue. His current work is primarily focussed on designing high performance programs for professional sporting organisations; exercise rehabilitation; and cutting edge research, investigating mechanisms of fatigue, muscle damage, inflammation, metabolic & electrolyte disturbances, immune function, heat and hypoxic physiology. Significant academic contributions include publications in high impact factor journals, including the prestigious Journal of Physiology and Journal of Applied Physiology, as head author and co-author. In clinical practice, Simon has a special interest in obesity and metabolic disorders; diabetes; cardiovascular disease; fatigue; and skeletal muscle/orthopaedic injury. Dr Sostaric has been retained for his services in Australia, United Kingdom, Europe, Japan and the USA. He has provided physiological and physical preparation services to athletes in preparation for numerous Olympic Games, and focus sports including; running, triathlon, cycling, all football codes, Formula One GP, motoGP, World Superbike, skiing, basketball, tennis and adventure sports. Simon is currently sport science/R&D consultant for 2011 AFL premiers Geelong Cats, and physiologist/physical preparation specialist for Red Bull Racing Formula One GP driver Mark Webber.
