The Biomechanics Laboratory (5,500 square feet) is equipped for investigating how human movement and body tissues are affected by mechanical physics and engineering principles. Biomechanics research in the lab focuses on:
- Performance improvement
- Injury prevention
- Injury assessment as applied to joint implants and bracing of the lower extremity and spine
- Sport-related concussion
We work with a diverse research population that includes varsity athletes of all ages, older adults, and special clinical populations such as individuals with prostheses, joint replacements, neurologic diseases, and joint instability. We partner with physicians, surgeons, engineers, biopsychologists and computer scientists.
