uMOVE - a core facility for biobehavioural and human movement sciences
The uMOVE Core Facility has been granted funds from the Strategic Research Area Health Care Sciences (SFO-V) at KI during 2018 to 2020, with the goal to develop and establish a state-of-the-art platform for movement analysis for researchers, teachers, students and clinicians via multidisciplinary approaches.
uMOVE is a joint collaboration between the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS), the Department of Women's and Children's Health (KBH) and the Department of Clinical Neuroscience (CNS) at Karolinska Institutet, and the Allied Health Professionals Function and the Children & Women's Health Theme at the Karolinska University Hospital.
Equipment and services
The uMOVE 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, kinetics and electromyography) to mobile and free living sensors (accelerometers, APDM system) 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) and offers various forms of motion analysis in combination with cognitive and psychological measurement methods, which makes it possible to: diagnose anomalous movement patterns, evaluate the effect of treatment, and to identify biomarkers for disease or disease progression.
Using the facility & prices
uMove 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.
