About uMOVE

uMOVE pyramidbilduMOVE has been granted funds from the Strategic Research Area Health Care Science (SFO-V) at KI during 2018 to 2020 to develop an infrastructure offering services to health care science researchers.

Using the facility

uMOVE, motoriklab KBH

This core facility provides service to users in a transparent manner, e.g. on first come first served basis, employing a fee-for-service where we can offer service tailored to the needs of the specific projects and expertise in the research groups - from design of the project, data collection, analysis and interpretation to just renting the equipment and/or lab space.

Equipment and services

This core facility is able to perform basic and clinical research within health care sciences in a multidisciplinary way with different methodologies, both objective and subjective measures, from basic motion analysis (kinematics and kinetics) to mobile and free living sensors (accelerometers) as well as movement and behaviour in relation to cognitive and emotional factors.

uMOVE also emphasizes the patient’s own experience and perception of movement, activity and interventions by patient reported outcome measures (PROM).
