Davide Dardanello received his B.Sc. degree in Physical Education from the Superior Institute of Physical Education of Turin (Italy) and his B.Sc. degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Eastern Piedmont Amedeo Avogadro (Italy) in 2001 and 2004 respectively. In 2009, he obtained a Master in Rehabilitation of Musculoskeletal Disorders at the University of Genoa, Italy. In 2012, he received his M.Sc. degree at the School of Exercise & Sport Sciences of the University of Turin. He is currently a PhD student in Medical Pathophysiology in Life and Health Sciences at the University of Turin, department of Medical Sciences. His research interests are mainly focused on the use of surface electromyography for the evaluation of the neuromuscular disorders in physical therapy.
