    Biomechanics at London Sport Institute group

    Our biomechanics research focuses on human movement, as well as its underlying mechanic, neural and physiological mechanisms. This also includes kinetics and kinematics linked to injuries.

    We're also working to develop different electronic systems for measuring performance indicators.

    Understanding human and animal movement

    We're examining how and why humans (and animals in general) move as they do, focusing on kinetics and kinematics linked to injury.

     We uncover how muscle and tendon work efficiently and optimally within the body – which allows us to understand, and improve, a wide selection of sporting movements.

    And this works to put the athlete in their best possible position – be it through optimal training or improving performance directly within competition.

    New applications and systems

    We're also interested in how the underlying mechanical factors limiting athletic performance can be applied to different sports – as well as how to develop different electronic systems for measuring performance indicators.

    Experts in – and outside of – the laboratory

    Through this research, our staff have become proficient in using a range of equipment, including motion analysis, isokinetic dynamometry, ultrasonography, electromyography and force plates.

    Others have provided expert advice for podiatrists looking to analyse human movement.
