Using the facility

Our services include a wide variety of competences in the analysis of human movement with high international recognition in different methodologies; from lab-based motion analysis to assessment of activities in daily life.

By combining various forms of motion analysis with cognitive and psychological measurements, uMOVE will offer the opportunity to:

  • Diagnose abnormal movement patterns
  • Evaluate the effect of treatment on motor control and daily activity
  • Identify biomarkers for disease or disease progression

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