Main areas of work at the FH Campus Wien
Physiotherapy works on the movement of the person. It focuses on the ability to move, all the systems that influence it and the interaction of sensory and motor functions. As an important component of the health care system, physiotherapy encompasses practically all medical disciplines and is oriented towards the medical sciences.
Our patients are healthy people of all ages, people with degenerative symptoms in the knee, hip and lumbar spine as well as patients with orthopaedic/traumatological asymmetric movement patterns.
At our institute we are specialists in the following areas:
- Fall prevention
- Dual and multitasking in everyday life, work and sport
- Smart systems for diagnosis and therapy
- Human-machine collaboration
FH Campus Wien is now the largest university of applied sciences in Austria. As our highlight, we have a movement laboratory that is also used for research. Equipped with force plates and optoelectronic cameras, it enables a three-dimensional analysis of human movements and a better understanding of functional deficits in everyday movements. Muscle activity is also measured via wireless electrodes that are attached to the body. Great potential lies in research projects at the interface of health, technology and social issues.
