Detection of movement performance

  3dimensional analysis of freely performed movements

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.


  Assessment of muscular co-ordination during freely performed movements

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 unit activity

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.
