Detection of movement performance
Quantitative assessment of movement performance
New methods and devices for analysing a patient’s individual movement performance and functional capacity during daily tasks are developed. Hereby, objective data about the patient’s individual movement performance and functional capacity can be gained and used to evaluate for example operation outcomes or rehabilitation success.
Detection and analysis of muscular coordination
Methods and devices for surface electromyography, in short: sEMG, are enhanced in order to meet clinical demands. Adaptive signal processing procedures have been developed to extract physiologically meaningful information from sEMG and to identify and evaluate pathological muscular activation during activities of daily living.
Non-invasive detection of single motor unity
Innovative electrodes and filter procedures are developed which enable the non-invasive and painless detection of single motor unit activity. Besides the diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders, the physiological and pathological activation patterns chosen by the central nervous system to control force generation can be similarly investigated.
