Personlig profil


Anders Holsgaard-Larsen, MSc, PhD. Orthopaedic Research Unit, Department of Clinical Science, University of Southern Denmark and Odense University Hospital. Holsgaard-Larsen is Professor in Clinical Biomechanics and received his Master degree within isolated musculoskeletal function in 2002 followed by the PhD degree in 2007 in biomechanical analysis and functional capacity in elderly individuals at the Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark. Then, he advanced his biomechanical competencies in a Post Doc position (2007-2009) investigating shoulder and neck problems in a multi-professional collaboration between chiropractors and sports scientists before moving to the Department of Clinical Research, University of Southern Denmark and Orthopedic Research Unit, Odense University Hospital, heading the gait and motion laboratory (2009-). From 2014-19 he was elected as President for the Danish Association of Biomechanics and was designated as host of the 29th annual meeting of the European Society for Movement analysis in Adults and Children (ESMAC 2021). Finally, he is affiliated with the Department of Women's and Children's Health, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm where he aims to develop collaboration between Karolinska and University of Southern Denmark.

Professor Holsgaard-Larsen possess a strong background in developing and validating research methodologies that have been implemented in the clinical practice and research projects. His primary research focus is to conduct translational research within musculoskeletal and/or orthopedic conditions and he master a variety of explorative methods from 3-dimensional motion analysis, pedography, electromyography, muscle dynamometry to simple functional performance-based tests and patient reported outcome measures. His research methodologies/competences are presently used in clinical studies ranging from healthy children, children with cerebral palsy, adults suffering from meniscectomy, anterior cruciate ligament rupture, femoroacetabular impingement to elderly patients suffering from knee or hip osteoarthritis. Furthermore, he has a vast experience in designing and conducting randomized controlled trials which is a contributing factor why he is the course leader of a PhD course on optimizing randomized controlled trials at the Department of Health Sciences at University of Southern Denmark.s:[1-5]
