Against this background, the goal of our research is to understand the functioning of human movements, i.e. the interaction of the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system, which enables coordinated movement behavior. Of particular interest to us is how training protocols have to be structured and modern technologies (e.g. orthoses or robotics) to be designed in order to optimize this interplay and thereby motor performance in different areas (e.g. sports or rehabilitation). To achieve these goals, we work as an interdisciplinary research team that connects different strands of research from sports science, neuroscience, medicine, computer and engineering science.
