We're recruiting for an orthopedics recovery study join us!

Orthopedic Disorder? Sign Up!

Through St Luc Hospital in Brussels, we are recruiting patients aged 1 year to 90 years old, any gender, with any muscular-skeletal impairments. The investigators will not take patients with multiple pathologies or not able to understand the instructions. (Follow directions!) Patients will be subject to different clinical assessments, fill out questionnaires or come to the laboratory for analysis of the movement depending on the goal defined for each patient. Patients will have their current clinical follow-up which the investigators be able to join a quantified analysis of the movement in the laboratory, satisfaction questionnaires, questionnaires measuring the impact of treatment on quality of life and their restriction of activities. It is a broad-spectrum study to try to improve the quality of care within a service target of orthopedics.
