Laurent Malisoux, PhD is the Group Leader of the Physical Activity, Sport and Health (PASH) research group. Over the last 5 years, he focused his research activities on the prevention of sports injury and the evaluation of physical activity in the general population in Luxembourg.
Laurent Malisoux has specifically developed an expertise in running-related injuries and conducted 3 randomized controlled trials on the effect of specific shoe features on injury risk in leisure-time runners. His research relies on both epidemiological and biomechanical approaches.
• Effects of bodyweight and shoe cushioning on injury risk and running biomechanics: A randomized control trial.
• Identification of meaningful and sensitive metrics to capture the different dimensions of physical activity using 24h time-series accelerometry data.
• The observation of cardiovascular risk factors in Luxembourg – Wave 2 (ORISCAV-LUX 2).
• Injury prevention at the Luxembourgish Army.
• Influence of sports flooring on impact forces during jump tasks.
• Assessment of physical activity in the Luxembourgish population.
• Does running shoe drop influence injury risk? An epidemiological and biomechanical study.
• Impact of shoe type on running-related injury: A randomized controlled trial comparing conventional running footwear with and without anti-pronation system.
• Relationship between training load and injury incidence in competitive young athletes.
• Motion-control shoes reduce the risk of pronation-related pathologies in recreational runners: A secondary analysis of a randomized controlled trial.

"Our study is the first worldwide to investigate both running technique and injury risk
in such a large cohort and over such a long period of time.",
