Report – Amidst neuroscience, sensors and robotics, Inserm researchers seek to better understand gestures.
Take each sequence of a movement one by one, breaking it down from milliseconds to milliseconds. Understand that a gesture that seems simple and natural to us, like reaching out to pick up fruit from a tree, is actually infinitely complex… and when something breaks in the body, it’s natural and easy to get back on the road.
“Rehabilitation after an accident is often based on empirical knowledge”Charlambos Papaxanthis, director of the Cognition, Action and Sensorimotor Plasticity (CAPS) Laboratory at Inserm in Dijon, explains. We apply methods that we have always implemented and which, if they work most of the time, also have many limitations. Many times rehabilitation patients are trained, they do not fully recover and start all over again after returning home.”
Backed by a high-end sports center and Dijon University Hospital, its research lab makes the big difference between enhancing performance…
