The Laboratory develops Sport Sciences Research focused on the integrated aspects of human movement. It proposes a systemic approach, aimed to interdisciplinarity, of Movement Sciences, oriented toward health and performance relationships. These relationships are studied within their social and societal context and get support from innovating metrology.

This research Laboratory develops 2 clearly identified research roads : Sport and Health and Sport and Performance.
The first road, Sport and Health uses a systemic approach of human movement and tries to determine lifelong risk factors for health. It also proposes individualised answers toward physical activity or ergonomic devices.
This road is developed through 3 types of public: youth people, athletes, and senior people.
- concerning youth people, it is focused to a prevention goal oriented to risk identification of sedentarity (4th reason for death).
- concerning athletes, it deals with the identification of health short and long term risk factors due to regular sport and physical activity
- concerning senior people, the question is to identify risk factors linked with loss of independence and to define means and process to help people to live with full autonomy as long as possible.
The second road is oriented toward performance optmisation through a systemic and ergonomic approach (i.e. bIking, fencing).
This road allows to study biomechanical, physiological, psychological, and sociological combined variables that stimulate elite performance. The identification of interactions between variables from different scientific areas aim to define useful patterns for performance and to provide recommendations regarding training process or improvement of equipment
1. Assessment of biomechanical, physiological, psychological and social characteristics in order to build prevention, rehabilitation, remediation or training programs. The specificity of the approach is to integrate variables from different scientific areas.
2. From this assessment, it is possible to propose, for all possible public profiles, structured physical activities programs adapted to performance or prevention targets.
3. Design and organization of selection processes (i.e. psychological selection of european astronauts in 2008 ; psychological selection of participants to long-term bed-rest experiment (2 months)) (Medes-Cnes, 2016-2017).
4 equiped rooms (130 m2) in UFRSTAPS (see below) and access possibilities to the University facilities at Sebastopol Hospital and to ESO (High School for ostheopathy) facilities in Marne la Vallée.

The PSMS Laboratory gather researchers from different scientific areas, but linked with Sport and Movement Sciences. They are working together in a multidisciplinary context. This methodology allows to build new understandable models for sport and physical activity, but seems too limited to better understand such a complex object. This is the reason why the Laboratory’s members try to really cooperate between scientific disciplines, sharing ideas, concepts, methodologies, etc. and facilitating the emergence of systemic and integrated scientific models.
The Laboratory has chosen to be part of an interdisciplinary research’s approach in order to better understand by a systemic approach the complex relationships between sport and physical activity from the one hand, and health and performance, in the other hand.
