Development in motion
We strive for high quality orthopaedic care and continuous improvement in order to help patients to restore their mobility and participate in society.

The care for our patients becomes more complex, since patients more and more suffer from several disorders next to their musculoskeletal disorder. Even after succesfull orthopaedic treatment, patients are often not able to restore their physical activity level.

By conducting research projects on local as well as (inter)national level, we aim to improve (secondary) prevention strategies, diagnostics and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, in order to restore physical activity level after orthopaedic treatment.

We focus on the following two fields of interest:

  • Determinants of movement behaviour
  • Innovative orthopaedics
