"It is with sadness that the Department of Kinesiology announces the passing of David Winter, Distinguished Professor Emeritus and internationally renowned scholar in biomechanics and gait. Winter died Monday, February 6, 2012 at the age of 81.
Winter came to Waterloo in 1974 from his post as Director of Biomedical Engineering at the Shriner's Hospital in Winnipeg with appointment in Surgery at the University of Manitoba. There he had developed one of the world’s first automated video-based methods of measuring and analyzing normal and abnormal walking (gait) patterns. He brought his significant engineering skills and his "Gait" laboratory, also one of only two or three in the world, to broaden and strengthen the biomechanics teaching and research program in the then quite new Department of Kinesiology..."
