MBT e la ricerca scientifica.

MBT è un membro attivo del Collegio Europeo delle Scienze dello Sport (ECSS-European College of Sports Science). Collabora, inoltre, con la Christian Doppler Research Association (CDA) di Vienna, organizzazione no-profit che promuove lo sviluppo, tra gli altri, nei settori delle scienze naturali e della tecnologia.
L’Accademia MBT è, invece, la struttura interna all’azienda dedicata alla Ricerca e Sviluppo. E’ un forum aperto al confronto scientifico con esperti e professionisti del settore della biomeccanica, della medicina clinica, della riabilitazione e dello sport.
