      Kinesiology deals with human motion, its control and motorial learning in relation to the biomechanical parameters of the locomotor apparatus. Rehabilitation relates on this knowledge in order to restore or improve locomotor functions when a diseases disorder, injuries or congenital defects appear. The program of doctoral studies in kinesiology and rehabilitation is based mainly on Master's degree in medicine, physiotherapy, ergotherapy and other master’s or engineering disciplines. Their scientific knowledge is used in rehabilitation (eg biomedical and clinical technology, biomedical engineering, prosthetics, biocybernetics, robotics and information technology). The proposed doctoral study program focuses on objectification of physiological parameters of human motorial disorders, identify the causes movement disorders and the possibility of therapeutic intervention. The methodology of the individual research projects will be adapted to the specific objectives of the work, the equipment of the training workplace and the research and professional focus of the trainer and the student. Methods of functional magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, electrophysiological methods, spiroergometry, posturography and more will be used in the measurement methodology.

      The program is carried out without any specialization.
