Muskelkraftmessung im Human Performance Lab der Schulthess Klinik

Do hip disorders have a different impact on the muscular system in men and women?

Joint diseases often affect the surrounding muscles and hip disorders such as osteoarthritis of the hip and femoroacetabular impingement syndrome are no exception. Yet is there difference in the way these diseases impact on the muscular systems of men and women? This is the question that the research team from our Human Performance Lab and Hip Surgery department have been investigating. The team has published two studies on the subject.

Research

The scientific work carried out by the Teaching, Research and Development department supports the clinic’s departments and thus helps improve patient care. Our research work is continuously providing new insights into the treatment of orthopaedic patients and reinforcing Schulthess Klinik’s international reputation as a centre of excellence.

 

Partnerships

Many of our multidisciplinary projects are carried out in cooperation with other institutions in Switzerland and abroad.
