U-motion lab

The research group at U-motion lab, Department of community medicine and rehabilitation; Physiotherapy, is headed by Professor Charlotte Häger, in close collaboration with Associate professor Helena Grip, medical engineering and Dr Lina Schelin, Statistics.

Our research deals with human sensorimotor control in health and disease and how to improve and evaluate disturbed movement control.

The U-motion lab with 3D motion analysis incorporating state of the art motion capture for kinematics, force plates for recordings of kinetics i.e., ground reaction forces, and electromyography (EMG) to monitor muscle activity. The lab is a core facility for our research although the research involves other methods as well such as for instance muscle strength testing in various dynamometers, physical activity monitoring, clinical assessments and surveys.

In collaboration with Umeå Centre for Functional Brain Imaging (UFBI), we evaluate movement control and precision using high tech motion cameras specially designed for the MR environment, to capture movement control in relation to simultaneous brain activation. Our research, particularly analyses of whole-body movements, generates a lot of complex data, why we work with development in statistical analysis for more comprehensive interpretation of human movements and performance in healthy and pathological conditions.
