Research interests

Professor of kinesiology Taija Finni, Ph.D., Docent Prof. Finni’s research ranges from basic neuromuscular function to translational research related to physical activity and sedentary behavior. Regarding physical activity field we study the electromyographic activity patterns in antigravity muscles of adults and children that have the potential to short-circuit the detrimental physiological processes of sedentary time resulting in better cardio-metabolic risk profile. We gain accurate individual-level knowledge of the sedentary behaviour that is needed for designing effective interventions. Another research line focusing on muscle-tendon neuromechanics has provided fundamental information on tendon properties and muscle-tendon function for exercise training, rehabilitation and insight into age-related changes in mobility and neuromuscular performance.
