- Histological changes: development of specific MRI sequences to demonstrate histological changes associated with spinal cord injury, including degeneration of white matter tracts. These new quantitative imaging techniques allow to assess the degree of damage and the beneficial effects of spinal cord repair strategies.
- Measure axonal loss in patients with a corticospinal tract impairment, based on transcranial magnetic stimulation. This technique provides accurate data to identify patients in need of a more aggressive therapy and will potentially be a reliable tool to measure the secondary progression of the disability.
- GAIMS project: collaborative project between ULg and CHU to develop a new gait analysis system well suited for the clinical routine. It provides a reference database with the gait characteristics of many MS patients and healthy people. Related to the disease progression, gait impairment characteristics allow to define an objective and quantitative score for the longitudinal follow-up of MS patients during their treatment and rehabilitation programs
