Research interests

My main research interest is to gain a better understanding for the usage of functional electrical stimulation (FES) for various types of muscular training. Although FES is a well established tool in clinical rehabilitation, there are still many open questions in order to release the technology´s full potential during a practical application - such as e.g. FES-Cylcing. My vision is to explore the physiological limits of FES, in the sport domain with athletes who suffer from a spinal cord injury.
