Lab Klinik

NRL @ Schulthess Klinik

The Neuromuscular Research Laboratory (NRL) was established as an independent unit of the Lower Extremity and Research departments at the Schulthess Clinic in September 2006. The original co-founders are Nicola Maffiuletti (Research department), Mario Bizzini (Research and FIFA F-MARC departments) and Urs Munzinger.

The principal activity of the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory is the evaluation of neuromuscular function in orthopaedic patients (e.g., hip and knee arthroplasty) and in sportsmen, with special emphasis on the plasticity of neural and muscular structures in relation to disuse, immobilisation, rehabilitation and physical training.

Internal as well as external funds (collaborative research grants and private companies/individuals) support the activities of the Laboratory.  The Neuromuscular Research Laboratory has extensive collaborative projects with numerous groups throughout the world.
