Welcome to BIM – Balance in Motion  / Biomechanics in Motion!

Our research is firmly rooted in our interaction with medical doctors, clinics, rehabilitation and sports institutes, and companies working in medical technology. Thereby we focus on the following questions:

  • How do we move?   ->  Recording technologies and analysis algorithms
  • How do we sense and control our movement?  ->  Understanding of the signal processing by our senses and in our brain and nervous system
  • How should we move?  -> Analyzing and optimizing movement at the workplace.
  • How can we improve our movement?  -> Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation

In addition to our own research, our Department of Medical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria is focused on research in
