A closely related part of my research is aimed at the development of assessment tools for the classification and categorisation of movement control and its development. The question that he is particularly interested in answering is: How can ‘good’ control of movement and its development be characterised and classified? This is an important question in relation to dysfunctional and disordered movement behaviour and disease, but also in the context of sport and healthy movement behaviour. Insights gained from characterisation and classification of movement control and coordination is important for the early identification of movement dysfunction, disorder and disease, and development of directed and evidence based care. For sport and healthy movement behaviour on the other hand insights gained from characterising and classifying control and coordination can be used, amongst others, for the identification/recognition and development of ‘talent’ and as a guide to use in injury prevention and rehabilitation.
