PROJECTS

Cycling biomechanics


Validation of measurement approaches in biomechanical assessment during cycling. The purpose of this project was to develop a comprehensive system for valid and reliable measurements of forces on the pedals and body motion. Fruit of the latter is our subsidiary company of Cycling Science.





Neuromuscular properties of the trunk and healthy spine (TNC project)


The purpose of this project was to develop a set of test protocols integrated into one unique measurement module for valid, objective and reliable assessment of the neuromuscular functions of the trunk. This was a milestone to use the system in everyday practice for people with low back pain. You can read more about TNC project here.





Recovery after exercise-induced muscle damage


The aim of this project was to examine the efficacy of certain recovery modalities to facilitate muscle repair following exercise-induced muscle damage. The project had two parts, firstly involving cryotherapy as a modality and secondly involving an intermittent lower body negative pressure therapy.





Spexor project - spinal exoskeletal robot


SPEXOR research project was obtained through the European Union Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020. Together with Jozef Stefan Institute and five other foreign partners, we are developing an spinal exoskeletal robot. The purpose of the latter is to prevent back injuries among workers who perform physically demanding work and for vocational reintegration. Learn more about the Spexor project here.
