The Technological Centre for Sport, Movement and Health is a partnership of The Hague University of Applied Sciences (Faculty of Health, Nutrition & Sport), Delft University of Technology, VU University Amsterdam (Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences), Basalt and InnoSportNL.
Improving performance through innovation
Improving performance through innovation in movement intervention: this is the mission of the Technological Centre for Sport, Movement and Health. A place where outstanding knowledge of the various disciplines comes together. In addition to the development of knowledge, knowledge is also applied to improve the sporting performance of individual athletes, with an emphasis on movement intervention. The aim of the technological centre is to gain national, but also international recognition by means of:
- a combination of practical research and substantive research
- forming a good link with industry
- a strong connection between research, training and practice
Sports and social issues
The research carried out by the Faculty of Health, Nutrition & Sport at The Hague University of Applied Sciences within the field of Sport, Movement and Health, focuses primarily on sport-specific issues, but social topics are also addressed. In addition, the technological centre also provides policy advice for organisations and associations.
At the technological centre (top) athletes, trainers and other interested parties can be tested (in terms of exercise physiology) and receive advice in the field of movement analysis at the academy. The research carried out by the Technological Centre thereby focuses on improving the ability to deliver (top) performances (learning and training) and improving optimal preparations for competitions (performing).
The Technological Centre for Sport, Movement and Health has three research themes:
- The innovation of (top) performance products
- Training methods for motor learning in (adapted) sport for both rehabilitation as well as performance improvements
- Human-material interaction in movement intervention
