HEALTHY MOVES PROJECT
In the course of their work, the clinicians and researchers associated with LIROMS are confronted with a large number of children, adolescents and young adults suffering from diseases or injuries of the lower limbs with a high risk of causing functional sequelae (pain, joint instability, osteoarthritis) and social sequelae (difficulty or even impossibility of moving around, engaging in physical activity, access to certain jobs) in the short and long term. A significant number of these pathologies and their after-effects are still poorly understood and/or difficult to assess, because the existing care offer is inadequate and often does not cover these complex treatments. Creating this care offer is now crucial both for the patient's well-being and for advancing know-how and understanding in this area of society. In terms of diagnostic resources, modern imaging (X-rays, CT scans, MRI) offers only a static view of the lower limb. However, many of these pathologies also require an understanding of the dynamic functioning of the affected limb. This need is not currently met in Luxembourg.
The objective of the project is to offer biomechanical gait analysis for young patients with musculoskeletal injuries or abnormalities or neuromuscular pathologies to improve their life and the quality of their life. The project is financed by André Losch Fondation.
