Innovation and Evaluation in rehabilitation

Pathophysiological analysis of movement disorders in relation to function.

Our research question is how biomechanical and neurological mechanisms result in the peripheral motor behavior that we observe in pathological conditions.
We aim to phenotype patients for successful treatment and development of new strategies.

Experimental and clinical measurement techniques are developed in our Laboratory for Kinematics and Neuromechanics (L-KiNe). Our techniques comprise kinematics and inverse dynamic modeling of the upper and lower limbs. For single and multi-joint system identification (SIPE) we use joint robotics of the wrist, elbow, ankle and instrumented gait analysis.

The techniques are developed in close collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Technical University Delft.
