Human Movement Biomechanics research field Controlled by the nervous system, human movement is achieved through a complex and highly coordinated interaction between bones, tendons, muscles, ligaments and joints within the neuro-musculoskeletal system.

Any injury to, or lesion in, any of the individual elements of the neuro-musculoskeletal system will change the mechanical interaction and cause degradation, instability or disability of movement. These movement deviations in turn can result in long term consequences on the body’s tissues and function.

Research outlines of MoveAbility research group

Persons with physical disabilities are the largest minority group in the world. Despite this, we as a society have relatively little ability to predict the long-term spiraling effects of their primary disability, and treatment is thus often short-sighted in nature. Our research activities focus on quantifying movement strategies employed by the nervous system, unravelling the causal relation between load bearing and adaptive capacity of individual elements of the neuro-musculoskeletal system, and developing adaptive assistive devices for children and adults with motion disorders. The strength of our research is enhanced with our combination of experimental and computational approaches through efficient collaboration of multi-professional networks.
