Laboratory: PPRIME Institute, Department: D3-GMSC, Team: RIOBOSF

ED SIMME Doctoral School proposes the following thesis subject:

Title of the thesis : Characterisation of anticipatory neuromuscular coordination during explosive movements

This project would be under the supervision of : Floren COLLOUD, D3-GMSC department of PPRIME Institute at Universite de Poitiers.

Co-supervisor(s) : Romain TISSERAND /

Starting date: 10/2021

Thesis presentation:
The objective of this PhD thesis is to characterize anticipatory muscular coordination during iexplosive movements performed by trained female and male athletes. The Ph.D. student will conceive experimental protocols where human participants have to perform explosive dynamic movements. Data will be collected using both human motion analysis (infrared cameras & force sensors) and muscular physiology (electromyography & superfast ultrasound echograph) equipment. Anticipatory neuromuscular coordination recorded during explosive movements will then be analysed using multi-scale and multi-physic models. Joint torques and muscular lengths and activation patterns will be estimated from a personalised musculoskeletal model. Data collected with echographs will help refine the characterization of interactions between muscular and tendinous fibers.
