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:

  1. Investigating the human sensorimotor control over gait and balance.
  2. 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
