Research work in the ZHAW movement laboratory
The movement laboratory of the Institute of Physiotherapy at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences is an important part of her research work. The laboratory enables a more in-depth analysis of movement and a better understanding of movement disorders.
In the movement laboratory, they analyse movement sequences and muscle activities using state-of-the-art technology. This enables them to precisely detect problems such as movement asymmetries or incorrect loading. At the same time, they sharpen the understanding of how therapeutic aids and interventions such as orthoses, shoes, exoskeletons or targeted training affect movement and health. The staff are experts in physiotherapy and movement analysis. Together with their partners, they close the gap between development and application. They know both the concerns of patients and the needs of healthcare professionals who apply new developments. This benefits their clinical partners, researchers, product developers from the medtech industry – and ultimately the patients.
