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 are equipment that he is putting into practice.

In addition to the 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.

His another major research&development area is robotics and VR in neurological rehabilitation.
