About uMOVE

The goal of the uMOVE core facility is to offer a state-of-the-art platform for the exploration of movement and behavior for researchers, teachers, students and clinicians via a multidisciplinary approach.

 uMOVE has been granted funds from the Strategic Research Area Health Care Science (SFO-V) at KI during 2018 to 2020, with the goal to develop and establish an infrastructure platform offering services within the field of movement analysis.

uMOVE is a joint collaboration between the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS) and the Women’s Health and Allied Health Professionals Theme at Karolinska University Hospital.
