The multidisciplinary research team of the Kinesiology Laboratory aims to improve functional diagnosis and to support treatment decision of motor disorders by developing original methods to assess, identify and understand movement impairments. We conduct translational research from basic science to clinical applications with a focus on locomotor activities using three main approaches:
– Methodology: identify movement disorders,
– Fundamental: understand movement disorders,
– Medical intervention: evaluate and predict effect of treatments to correct movement disorders.
The final aim of our researches is to improve the well-being of individuals with motor disabilities.
The flexion relaxation phenomenon in nonspecific chronic low back pain: prevalence, reproducibility and flexion-extension ratios. A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Which functional tasks present the largest deficits for patients with total hip arthroplasty before and six months after surgery? A study of the timed up-and-go test phases.
Sensory modulation of gait characteristics in human locomotion: A neuromusculoskeletal modeling study.
A systematic review of movement and muscular activity biomarkers to discriminate non-specific chronic low back pain patients from an asymptomatic population.
