#Motor Rehabilitation

The research area of Motor Rehabilitation at the St. Pölten UAS develops technology-assisted approaches to physical rehabilitation and promotes their widespread use in clinical practice by cooperating with industrial partners.



Evaluation of the accuracy of non-invasive hip joint centre estimation methods for clinical gait analysis in children and adolescents

Evaluating technical measuring accuracy

Evaluating the technical measuring accuracy of a 3D monitoring system for the continuous tracking of lumbar spine movements

The Children's KNEEs Study

The aim of the Children’s KNEEs Study is to analyze altered biomechanical movement strategies in obese children during walking and stair climbing and to develope a specific training program for them...
