Paperjam article : 'The stride analysed by 3D analysis'
Title: La foulée décortiquée par une analyse 3D by Prof. Dr. Jan Cabri in Paperjam on May 20th 2021
For the past year, the CHL has offered a laboratory for the analysis of movement in 3 dimensions. A godsend for runners, who are sometimes unaware of the source of the injuries that too often bring them to stop running.
In running, chronic or overload injuries are frequent. And without seeing the patient in action, it is sometimes difficult for a doctor to determine the cause. Often, it is linked to the way of running or to a malformation, which can be benign but disabling in the long run.
To overcome this problem, the Luxembourg Institute of Research in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine and Science (LIROMS) has set up the Human Motion Laboratory. "This laboratory has existed for about ten years," explains Professor Jan Cabri, Scientific Director at LIROMS. "But in the last year we have equipped it with three-dimensional motion analysis technology to analyse walking and running."
