Understanding hand motor control

The human hand is capable of intricate individual finger movement patterns as playing the piano or typing, while most common movements – like grasping – involve simultaneous use of multiple fingers. The analysis of both types of movement show that fingers do not move independently from one another The aim of this project is to assess the contribution of neurophysiological and mechanical characteristics of our neuro-musculo-skeletal system to the limited independence of finger control.

Breaking the high load – bad coordination in overhead sports injuries

The aim of this project is to develop a system to provide feedback on loading of the arm and key coordination parameters in sports activities such as a tennis stroke, which provides information on the (accumulated) load a, based on power flow models and ligament loading estimates.
