Biomechanics, Kinesiology and Computer Science in Sport

Our research focus on the use of neuro-musculoskeletal simulations to enhance our understanding of typical and pathological movements. My team collects and analyzes motion capture data and medical images from various groups, including children with cerebral palsy, athletes and obese people. Amongst others, we strive to improve clinical decision making in people with movement disorders and enhance evidence-based motor rehabilitation after injuries or orthopedic interventions.
