The research group focuses on people who due to symptoms or chronic disorders (for example arthritis and obesity), mobility limitations or restrictions of the musculoskeletal system are less mobile and unable to exercise and play sports as much as they should or would like.
The research focuses on the following themes with the corresponding research questions:
What are effective (technical) tools to encourage exercise and sport among people with physical disabilities?
Recording and analysing exercise
How can we better understand the exercise behaviour and performance of people with physical disabilities to promote and optimise exercise?
Support and optimisation
Which technological innovations and improvements of existing mobility aids can help increase exercise and sport participation among people with physical disabilities?
