Organisation profile

The department of Experimental anatomy is a basis for fundamental research of topographical, functional and clinical anatomy, polarised around the human body and its body composition. Both dissections (a detailed study of the interior human body) and plastine studies (made of prepared parts of the human body) are elements of every students' contact with anatomy. The research findings (Anatomical variations and detailed mapping experiments) keep updating in function of this type of education, with variable accents in clinical anatomy and anatomy in vivo. Furthermore its application towards rehabilitation sciences, sport sciences (performance analysis and analysis of the human motor behaviour) and ergonomics (simulation conditions and task analysis) are domains that are explored on a continuous basis. The use of electromyography, the caption of the muscular activity by means of surface electrodes, is a means to approach and study applied biomechanics which reveals the magnificent world of the interior of the living body while it is in a static or dynamic context. EXAN is also home of the GGS Manuele Therapie, arthrokinematics, isokinetics, body composition,...
