Thematic area 5: – Mechanical properties of musculoskeletal system- Stretch-Shortening-System- Neuromuscular adaptations

Co-ordinator: Arabatzi Fotini, Assistant Professor

Our aim is to examine the mechanical properties of the musculoskeletal system.

  1. Stiffness of muscles, tendons and whole limbs
  2. Role of musculotendinous mechanics for movement execution and performance
  3. Neuromuscular and musculoskeletal adaptations to specific exercise
