Team RoBioSS "Robotics Biomechanics Sport Health"



  • Research & teaching support
  • Development of motion analysis experiments

Research support

I have to develop tools for motion capture and  for measurement systems of interactions(Vicon, Kistler, Sensix, Basler, SRM ...) according to projects of the team RoBioSS.


Definition of the energy profile of professional cyclists from a mechanical point of view (co-supervision of a thesis). This research program is funded by the French Agency for the Fight against Doping (AFLD) and Europe through the FEDER Operational Program of Poitou-Charentes.

Development of the walking track of the motion analysis platform, including finalizing the integration of a set of 8 force plates) in the motion capture system (packaging, export / processing / import data, real time feedback …)



Teaching support

Development of biomechanics' teaching tools for students of the Faculty of Sports Science of Poitiers (image analysis, force platform, the energy theorem, inverse dynamics, simulation...)


Development since 2007 of the concept of the Classes Olympiques Sciences et sport in agreement with the Ministry of Education and the National Olympic Committee of French sport. The goal is to increase the interest for the engineering sciences (physics, mathematics, computer science, biomechanics ...) of middle school students through the study of their athletic performance. Collaborations with CRITT Sport-Loisirs to develop a toolkit for deploying "Sciences & Sport" action at the regional then national level.
