Faglig innhold

In this course you will learn how to perform quantitative movement analysis including how to record, analyse, and interpret movement characteristics using 3D motion capture equipment, force sensors and electromyography in a range of activities. Moreover, you will be introduced to how the musculo-skeletal system is built in a functionally effective manner, how it aids control and stability of movement, and helps keeping energy cost of locomotion low. Examples and demos show how quantitative movement analysis could be used in early diagnosis and evaluation of treatment and sport performance.



The candidate has:

  • advanced knowledge of and can discuss research-based knowledge of movement coordination and mechanical aspects of intra-limb coordination and energy cost of exercise
  • advanced knowledge about essential technical aspects of relevant equipment to obtain reliable and valid data from signal detection through digitalization to model choice and variable calculation
  • advanced knowledge on how to use quantitative movement analysis to set early diagnosis, evaluate treatment, instrument clinical tests, and evaluate sport performance


The candidate can:

  • investigate problems regarding multi-joint coordination, work economy, movement optimization criteria, and stability and balance in posture and movement
  • use laboratory-based methods for the investigation of kinematics, dynamics and muscle activation, including data collection, data analysis and evaluation, presentation and interpretation of results
  • apply physiological, biomechanical and technical knowledge to obtain high data quality data

General competence

The candidate can:

  • plan and implement reproducible data collection sessions
  • instruct and communicate with study participants
  • report and communicate research results and masters the terminology of the field
