We are very proud to have received the city of Stockholm scholarship in the category of life sciences for our test system on movement patterns.
Motivation as follows:
“There is an increasing interest in how technology and methods can improve training and rehabilitation through a need to improve performance, prevent injuries, and if necessary, find the cause of pain. To measure a sitting person on a bench performing a leg kick in one plane of motion is easy. However, it is difficult to link such a measurement to a performance in areas such as football. There is however a unique solution to test movement patterns in three different planes of motion. That way, you gain numerous possibilities to tie together mobility, stability and strength in one form of performance. This leads to better results in less time. With a conceptual mat as a starting point can the innovation be used by physical therapists and trainers and at the same time be of great help for rehab patients as well as professional athletes.”Stockholm’s Innovation Scholarship 2012, Life Sciences category, go to: Jessica Parnevik-Muth, Ola Eriksrud and Ali Ghelem for innovation “Test systems for movement patterns.”
