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.
