Repetitive Strain Injuries in musicians: 1st phase: Evaluation of the kinematic/kinetic chains of the bow and support arm and cervicothoracic region in violin/viola players.

This project about RSI in musicians has two goals: 1. to constitute a centre of expertise related to musculoskeletal complaints in musicians and 2. related, clinical and biomechanical (kinematic and kinetic) research about the muscle coordination, fatigue and arthrokinematics of the motoric performance control of music scores and the causes of RSI in musicians. In a first phase, this research furthers with the study on violists/violinists, research which has been started last year on violists of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen.
