  • 3D-motion analyses with both an i) optoelectronic camera system, and ii) a more mobile full body IMU system.
  • Forces, e.g., using force plates and various dynamometers.
  • Muscle activity with wireless electromyography systems.

In addition, we have various equipment for experimental disturbances of balance and other motor control functions. We also develop and validate new technologies and methods for clinical applications, e.g., VR and sensor technologies. The lab group includes researchers, phd-students and lab technician.

We are looking for: Networking, collaborations and funding for research on various aspects of human motor control, e.g., i) in musculoskeletal pain, ii) balance control among people of older age, but also highly skilled such as iii) musician and iv) athletes. We have a special and unique interest in investigating motor control and learning in fly casting (fly fishing) and welcome collaborations with national and international companies and associations sharing this interest.

Human Health and Activity laboratory (H2Al)

Contact person:

Anneli Nyman

The activity laboratory is designed as the next generation of “smart homes” where parameters of a person’s daily activities can be followed with different types of systems. The lab has passive systems that are integrated into the environment (for positioning of people and things) and active systems that are carried by the person (to monitor physiological parameters such as heart rate, respiration, muscle activity, skin conductance, eye-tracking and cerebral activity).

The lab group includes researchers in occupational therapy, pervasive and mobile computing and a lab technician.

We are looking for: Networking, collaborations and funding for research on various aspects of human performance of daily activities in the home environment.
