The Parker Institute is part of Copenhagen University Hospital at Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg. The Parker Institute strives, through research with focus on locomotory and related disorders, to improve the status of health in the population via prevention at all levels, increasing knowledge of disease mechanisms and diagnostics, and by creating evidence-based treatments. The activities include observations and register based research, analysis of literature, and diagnostic studies of patient-reported outcome measures, clinical tests, imaging with ultrasound and MRI, and biomechanical evaluation, as well as randomised clinical and population interventions. The Institute participates in creation of evidence based prevention and medicine and in the development of new treatment strategies.
The staff counts a broad range of health professionals and scientists, all dedicated to research into clinical advances for patients and disease prevention for the population.
