SCIENCE

In cooperation with the CIT research team, the Universities of Tübingen, Memphis and Palma de Mallorca, the Urban Dance Health team has conducted three scientific studies with 141 B-Boys. A self-help therapy method with a myofascia manipulation tool and the biomechanical tissue properties in correlation breaking-specific movement directions were explored.

These studies were presented at the International Fascia Research Congress in Washington DC (2015), at the Tamed Dance Medicine Congress in Dresden (2016), at the International Congress for Integrative Medicine and Health in Stuttgart (2016), at the BFE Meeting in Aveiro (2017) and at the Fascia Symposium in Coburg (2017).

In September 2015 the „Self-help Treatment with a Myofascial Manipulation Tool“ study received the 3rd prize for best poster presentation at the International Fascia Research Congress in Washington DC.
