Paavo has strong experience in conducting measurements and developing data analysis methods for biomechanical motion analysis.  Motion capture system, force platforms, instrumented treadmill, wearable IMU-sensors and EMG measurement systems (ME6000, eMotion, Faros) are equipment that he is putting into practise. 

In addition to motion laboratory, he is developing software for robot-assisted rehabilitation environment. Also developing laboratory hardware of all four laboratories of the research group with technical experts is his duty.

Paavo is conduction musculoskeletal modelling in OpenSim-platform to analyze knee contact forces and muscle activations. Current research interests include analysis on patient-specific rehabilitation of knee osteoarthritis and analysis of muscle forces at sports movements such as dance and ski-jump takeoff.

In 2020 Paavo is involved in two projects, in which robotics is applied in welfare services and stroke rehabilitation.
