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.
Definition and reliability of 3D acetabular and global offset measurements from bi-plane X-rays.
Sensitivity and specificity of the flexion and extension relaxation ratios to identify altered paraspinal muscles' flexion relaxation phenomenon in nonspecific chronic low back pain patients.
Reliability of the pelvis and femur anatomical landmarks and geometry with the EOS system before and after total hip arthroplasty.
Running capacity in children with bilateral cerebral palsy: What are the biomechanical and neuromotor differences between runners and walkers?
