Neuromechanics and Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

Neuromechanics and Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

Main PI: Prof. Dr. Uwe G. Kersting

Here the aim is to understand fundamental mechanisms of positive and negative adaptations to physical loading in sports and everyday life contexts. We join biomechanics and neurophysiologic/motor control research methods to:

  • Understand acute and long-term sports injury mechanisms
  • Investigate the processes of multi-layered adaptation during training, rehabilitation and return to play
  • Assess the influence of equipment, training and conditioning strategies in fundamental, clinical and applied research contexts
