Welcome to the Associate Professorship of Conservative and Rehabilitative Orthopaedics

Our work focuses on developing and optimizing non-surgical treatment options for people with pathologies of the musculoskeletal system as well as those aiming to recover functionality after surgery. The aim of our work is to create more effective, faster and more economical courses of therapy while reducing the need for surgical intervention. To that end, we catpure and analyze images of movement and are active in the field of shoe development.
