Neuromechanics & Neurorehabilitation

Bild Motion Capture

Neuromechanics combines neurophysiological and biomechanical approaches to study human movements. The research group uses neuromechanical analysis to investigate balance- and gait disorders of neurological diseases - particularly Parkinson's disease. 


The second main focus of the research group is Neurorehabilitation. The group investigates the effectiveness of physical therapy to treat gait and balance disorders. Using the knowledge of the neuromechanical analysis leads to a deeper understanding of the underlying disease specific mechanisms. Exercise is investigated in training intervention studies.
