Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement (LMAM)

The multidisciplinary research of the Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement aims on improving movement monitoring and analysis in real-world conditions, through the design of wearable systems and algorithms. We are particularly interested to characterise sport performances and pathologies affecting motor function.

June 23, 2021 – Inmodi team, EPFL Innograntees, win Venture Kick Stage II CHF 40’000 support.

The inmodi project led by Dr. Jérôme Thevenot won the Venture Kick Stage II CHF 40,000 support, which will help the team to further develop the technology and perform pilot testing with early adopters.

April 29, 2021 – Inmodi team, EPFL Innograntees, will be participating in the STARTUP CHAMPIONS SEED NIGHT.

The 10th edition of this event is organized by EPFL Alumni, EPFL Vice Presidency for Innovation and Venturelab. Designed to present the most promising entrepreneurs from EPFL and beyond, this event will feature a live pitch competition of 20 startups. The Inmodi team will have 90 seconds to show how their technology is going to change the field of Osteoarthritis and Knee Health.

March 22, 2021 – Careers in the sports industry

Interview with Mathieu Falbriard, former LMAM doctoral student and co-founder of a startup addressing the issue of traumatic brain injuries in contact sports.

February 3, 2021 – Inmodi team, EPFL Innograntees, win Venture Kick Stage I CHF10’000 grant.

Based in LMAM, the Inmodi team, consisting of Dr. Jérôme Thevenot and Olga Motovilova, are developing a smart wearable to assess knee health at any Point of Care. The technology enables to collect thermal, acoustic and kinematic data from the knee in motion and assess the joint integrity. First focus is on early detection and monitoring of osteoarthritis, an irreversible degradation of cartilage and leading cause of disability worldwide. The technology has further application in rehabilitation, diagnostics, sports and research. The team won the Venture Kick Stage I CHF 10,000 grant, which will help further develop the prototype and acquire early adopters and key partners.

January 4, 2021 – Welcome to Smart helmet Ignition project

Dr Mathieu Falbriard former Phd student from LMAM and Tom Bertrand obtained an Ignition startup grant from EPFL  for their Smart Helmet project. Warm welcome and looking forward for their success

January 1, 2021 – DIGIPREDICT project

Together with 9 European partners, EPFL has launched a pan-European research program called Digipredict (contraction of digital and predicting). The goal is to develop a digital twin that can detect serious complications in Covid-19 patients, employing breakthrough technology in the fields of artificial intelligence, smart patches and organs-on-chips. The initiative brings together around a dozen partner organizations universities, hospitals and startups, including our lab.



LMAM research focus on the design of wearable and implanted technology to characterize and evaluate pathologies affecting motor function or to study motor performances in sports
