In the Clinical Biomechanics and Motor Control group focused on orthopeadic applications (CBMC-OA) we aim to increase our understanding of the role of mechanical loading and movement deviations in patients with osteoarthritis (OA) and other orthopaedic conditions (e.g. arthroplasty, shoulder pathology), in order to reach better precision diagnostics and optimize treatment outcomes.
For this purpose, we investigate and apply interventions and novel technologies such as:
prof.dr.ir. Jaap Harlaar, professor clinical movement analysis
prof.dr. Joost Dekker, professor in allied health care
dr.ir. Josien van den Noort, scientific investigator
dr. Martin van der Esch (Reade), clinical investigator
drs. Marjolein Booij (POST-TKA)
drs. Tomasz Cudejko (KNEEMO-BRACE)
drs. Rosie Richards (KNEEMO-FEEDBACK).
ir. Jim Schrijvers (STOA)
In many of our projects, we work closely together with several academic, clinical and commercial partners:
