The Laboratory works on identifying innovative rehabilitation and prevention approaches targeting muscle weakness, biomechanical asymmetries, and performance limitations.
The Neuromuscular & Human performance laboratory was established by Prof. Shmuel Springer in 2015. The research in the laboratory focuses at two main aspects:
- Investigating the human sensorimotor control over gait and balance.
- Developing new techniques for application of non-invasive electrical stimulation (e.g. NMES, FES) to improve clinical practice and patients’ outcomes.
Key elements implemented in the Lab research are:
- Application of principles driven by the field of sensorimotor control in the elderly and neurology research/rehab to MSK arena
- Integration of high-end technology into research and clinical practice
- Collaborations with various research groups as well as with the medical device industry
