Einfluss des kraniomandibulären Systems auf die posturale Kontrolle des Menschen

 

Das Forschungsprojekt „Einfluss des kraniomandibulären Systems auf die posturale Kontrolle des Menschen bei dynamischen Gleichgewichtsaufgaben“ wird von der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) gefördert.

Das Ziel des Projekts besteht darin, erstmals den Einfluss kontrollierter motorischer Aktivität des kraniomandibulären Systems (KMS) auf die posturale Kontrolle in prädizierbaren und nicht-prädizierbaren dynamischen Situationen zu untersuchen. Hierzu werden die Bewegungen von Probanden beim Lösen unterschiedlicher dynamischer Gleichgewichtsaufgaben auf kinematischer und muskulärer Ebene erfasst und mit Verfahren, die unmittelbar aus aktuellen Modellen der motorischen Kontrolle abgeleitet sind, analysiert. Mit diesem interdisziplinären Forschungsansatz werden bisherige Forschungsarbeiten zielgerichtet fortgesetzt, um den Einfluss des KMS auf posturale Kontrollprozesse umfassend zu verstehen.

The research project "modelling the performance structure in the Olympic rifle disciplines air and small bore rifle" is funded by the Federal Institute for Sports Science (BISp).
The aim of the project is to develop performance structure models for the Olympic disciplines air rifle and small bore fire. With these models, a theoretical foundation and optimization of the performance diagnostic in the DSB in the rifles desciplines will be possible. The project is conducted in close cooperation with the German Shoting and Archery Federation (DSB).

The service research project "Development and evaluation of a ‘Wireless Sensor Modul’ for pistol disciplines in shooting sports" is funded by the Federal Institute for Sports Science (BISp).

The aim of this research project is the development of hard- and software components for a novel measuring station for the Olympic pistol disciplines of the German Shooting and Archery Federation (DSB). In the future, the measuring station will feature wireless data acquisition and analysis of time, pressure and movement patterns during trigger pulling and the aiming movements.

Biomechanics as an interdisciplinary approach in natural sciences

The "Biomechanics as an interdisciplinary approach in natural sciences" project is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Art of Baden-Württemberg.

In the program for the promotion of lighthouses in teacher education in the state of Baden-Württemberg, KIT was successful in cooperation with PH Karlsruhe with their research proposal "MINT²KA - teaching and learning labs in the STEM subjects as an innovation and networking field in teacher education at KIT and PH Karlsruhe“. In this joint research project, headed by Prof. Dr. A. Woll (KIT) & Prof. Dr. C. Benz (PH Karlsruhe), innovative teaching and learning labs for the education of teachers in the STEM subjects are established. One of these teaching and learning labs will be developed at the BioMotion Center within the sub-project "Biomechanics as an interdisciplinary approach in natural sciences".

Biomechanical evaluation of a hip brace for the treatment of hip osteoarthritis

The research project "biomechanical evaluation of a hip brace for the treatment of hip osteoarthritis” is conducted in cooperation with Bauerfeind AG.

Hip osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease with a high prevalence and large impact on patients' quality of life. Hence, the development of effective conservative treatment strategies is of great importance to delay the onset and progression of osteoarthritis.

Patients with hip osteoarthritis show limited mobility in the hip joint causing diverse modifications in their gait patterns which might negatively influence the loading of the hip joint. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to analyze hip functionality and gait patterns of patients with unilateral hip osteoarthritis and evaluate the effectiveness of an innovative hip brace to modify hip function and pathological gait biomechanics.
