Dr Alexis Lion holds a PhD in Health and Life Sciences from the University of Lorraine (France). He worked on the evaluation of postural control according to different paradigms (sport, pathologies) and has been involved in research concerning the epidemiology and prevention of sports injuries. He is interested in the promotion of health-enhancing physical activity and is currently the project leader of ‘Sport-Santé’.
