This state-of-the-art infrastructure, born from a joint idea of the Ministry of Sports, the City of Differdange, the Luxembourg Olympic and Sports Committee (COSL) and the Luxembourg Olympic Medical Center (CMOL), places Luxembourg at the forefront in terms of measurement of movement analysis, injury prevention and return to sport among top athletes in Europe.
Managed by the Luxembourg Institute for High Performance in Sports (LIHPS), in collaboration with its scientific partner, the Luxembourg Institute of Research in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine and Science (LIROMS), the biomechanical movement laboratory within the SportFabrik aims to promote high-level sport, medicine and sport science.
The main mission of the SportFabrik is to provide the Luxembourg sports sector in general, and elite sport, in particular, with the highest scientific standards and cutting-edge research methods in functional biomechanics, movement analysis, motor control. , motor function diagnosis, return to sport and injury prevention, to help athletes achieve their best performance in the healthiest possible conditions.
An additional mission of the SportFabrik is to pursue the development and dissemination of its highly specific scientific knowledge through research projects, programs or educational activities in collaboration with other sectors and ministries in Luxembourg but also at the level international.
Georges Engel welcomed the inauguration of this new biomechanical movement laboratory which, alongside the High Performance Training and Recovery Center (HPTRC), the second phase of which has just begun with the construction of the future Recovery Center at La Coque, constitutes a major additional pillar in the supervision of high-level athletes. He took the opportunity to thank all the actors involved throughout the process of carrying out this important project.
“This innovative project is a real added value both for the development of high-level sport and for the research sector in Luxembourg. To enable Luxembourg athletes to remain competitive at the international level, we must guarantee them the same conditions. and training methods that these do not benefit from their foreign counterparts”, underlined Georges Engel.
