Phd project:

My study, movement and motor control in chronic neck pain patients, is a part of a large project called FYSIOPRIM (Physiotherapy in primary health care). In our lab we can do several tests for motor control :

  • Range of motion and joint position error
  • The Fly test (from Kristjansson) and trajectory of a figure of eight used in a previous phd project in our lab
  • Postural balance
  • Head lift test

In our lab we use a 3D measuring device from Polhemus (Liberty). The lab is developed in close cooperation with engineers from NTNU.

I want to study the association between pain and self reported function and movement and motor control. The datacollection started in January 2013 and will go on for a year.
