Biomechanics, Kinesiology and Computer Science in Sport

Our vision is to enhance our knowledge about human movements as well as the development and evaluation of informatics methods for supporting sports activities. The overarching objective is to increase performance in athletes, promote physical activity, prevent injuries in healthy individuals, accelerate rehabilitation after injuries, and improve clinical decision-making in people with movement disorders.

One main activity of the department is to use neuro-mechanical principles to analyse human movement. Additional emphases are the systematic analysis of game sports and the development of feedback systems and intelligent motion advisors.
