Pylon and platform projects

Trinity will be spawned by a Pylon project that will bring together junior and senior resesarchers from all 3 faculties in a common goal. The Pylon project will include Motion technology, Bodily interaction and Para sports.

Trinity will grow through Platform projects, that utilze elements created in the Pylon project to enhance or accelerate other projects that involve interdisciplinary motion technology.


 BARI:  Bodily And Robotic Interaction

Trinity's first defining project - A tridisciplinary pylon

In BARI 3 Ph.D. students work closely together on a common goal: "Developing interactive robotics to improve the daily life of young adults with cereberal palsy (CP), through motion"

In a partnership with Egmont Højskolen, Dansk Handicapforbund and Odense University hospital, we will use the RoboTrainer-One technology to assist with enabling strength training, and Augmented Gravity to enable and improve daily sports and fun activities for young adults inflicted with CP.

Flexible forceplatform for elite training:

Trinity's first external project

Partner: Team Danmark


Development and demonstration of new concepts for sensors and biofeedback in the training of elite athletes.

The initial focus is to bring SDU's experience with modular technology, force sensing and biofeedback into the context of elite sports. The initial sport focus is on fast force development and control juring jumping and sprinting. The initial technology focus is on accuracy and flexibility through modularity. The initial interaction focus is on improvement through biofeedback.

Learning projects

Trinity provide an excellent contexture for interdisciplinary students projects related to motion technology

For example:

  • Robotassisteret træning af excentrisk overload

  • Vejrtræknings Biofeedback og Koncentration

  • Robot-assisted leg training

  • Cancer & Kondition

  • Detection of Abnormal Gait

  • EMG for controlling RoboTrainer Light

  • Trådløs EMG sensor til bio-feedback

  • Gang analyseværktøj baseret på IMU

  • Analyzing and Visualizing data from robotic rehabilitation process

  • Changes in EMG signals due to robotic weight relief

  • Robot assisted Nordic Hamstring training

  • Optimeret håndtræning med principper fra exoskeletter og soft robotics

  • Validation of sensors for analyzing during exercise

Events and similar

Covid all but prevent events involving motion technology, but we have participated in few

In addition to a high number of internal and external workshops with existing and potential partners,  the work and topics embedded in Trinity have asserted itself in ways like:

  • DK support for ESA's 2021 astronaut campaign
    SDU's research in training technology is space related, due to our work on Augmented Gravity. On that basis SDU has made several appearances in order to help promote ESA's astronaut campaign in Denmark.
  • Book mention and Social Media
    The practical aspects of the research that Trinity's Pylon Project rest on, was described in the book: "Tina's hjernestop", by Lene Petersen (march 2021)
  • Invited talk at The Royal Society, London
    Anders S. Sørensen held an invited talk on:

    Making effective rehab training available to everyone

    At the "Trauma recovery" conference on march 4. 2020

Get involved!

Both the envorinment and the topics created by the Trinity projects are meant to inspire further interdisciplinary ideas, projects and opportunities on all levels.

Trinity is comitted to creating and supporting new interdisciplinary activities within education and student projects as well as research projects and external collaboration.

We highly appreciate student projects that aim to empower and activate people in terms of bodily motion and interaction through applied technology, or aim to study the effect dynamics of technolgy augmented motion and interaction
