Philippe Rouch is Professor and Director of the Institut de Biomécanique Humaine Georges Charpak at Arts et Métiers ParisTech. He graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan and obtained a PhD in medium vibrations modeling in 2001.
Since 2010, he joined the Laboratoire de Biomécanique at Arts et Métiers ParisTech to develop musculoskeletal models especially for sport biomechanics. By coupling EOS 3D imaging, EMG, motion analysis, these combined models allow to compute performance criteria or injury risks criteria.
He’s currently working with the French Federation of golf, soccer, rugby, basketball, ping-pong and with INSEP. He will present one example on the influence of the playing surfaces on the injury risks for soccer or rugby players.
Looking at Tiemppo, he sees the potential for injury prevention among athletes with accurate measurements and feedbacks.
