Apresentação dos programas de pós-graduação ligados à Biomecânica no Brasil - UNESP

Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ciências da Motricidade – Interunidades – Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP


O Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ciências da Motricidade foi criado em 1991, nível de mestrado acadêmico. A criação do Curso de Doutorado no programa foi implementada em 2001. O programa de Pós-Graduação possui conceito 6 na CAPES mostrando, assim, a qualidade científica de nosso corpo docente e nossa preocupação em formar profissionais de alto nível para o mercado nacional e internacional.

Os objetivos do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ciências da Motricidade são: formar docentes da área de educação física e áreas afins como educação, psicologia, sociologia, fisioterapia, física, filosofia, psicologia, engenharias e biologia e formar pesquisadores na área de motricidade humana.

Áreas de Concentração: Biodinâmica da Motricidade Humana, Pedagogia da Motricidade Humana e Atividade Física e Saúde.

COORDENAÇÃO E CONTROLE DE HABILIDADES MOTORAS

Descrição: Examina os mecanismos e processos subjacentes à aquisição, realização e refinamento das ações motoras ao longo do ciclo vital, sob condições normais e atípicas.


- Resumo dos projetos que estão sendo desenvolvidos:

1) Asymmetry in Parkinson’s disease: effects on walking and posture

The most patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) shows unilateral motor impairment. However, the motor control related to asymmetry on walking and postural control is not well known. The general aim of this study is to analyze the asymmetry on walking, with and without environmental demands, and posture, according to the effect of medication, of the patients with PD in early and moderate stages of the disease. To answer the questions of the project, a series of studies will be developed, which will address the asymmetry on walking with and without auditory cue and postural control in different static positions.

2) Impact of muscle fatigue on mechanics and motor control of walking in different environments

The aim of this thesis was to analyze the effects of muscle fatigue on mechanics and motor control of walking in different environments. Series of fatigue and walking experiments addressed the effect of leg muscle fatigue on walking in different environments, the impact of age and neurodegenerative diseases on gait adjustments with muscle fatigue, and effects of fatigue in task-specific muscle groups on mechanics and control of gait during stepping down.

3) Biomechanics, motor control and performance

The best performance in sports is the dream of all athletes. To improve the performance is necessary a detailed analysis of the movement. Therefore, the aim of this project is to analyze the performance of the athletes in different sports from the point of view of biomechanics and motor control. For this, a series of studies has been developed seeking to answer questions related to the human movement applied to sport.

4) Posture, locomotion and neurodegenerative disease

The main aim of this study is to understand underlying how gait and posture are planned and controlled. The research approach consists of a combination of experimental and clinical studies aimed at unraveling the interplay between organismic, task-related, and environmental constraints examining gait and posture in neurologically healthy individuals and people with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. A series of studies are investigating the mechanisms of postural control and locomotion in neurologically healthy individuals and with neurodegenerative disease, included or not in a physical activity program.
