and Motion Analysis
Studies are performed in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Motion Analysis Laboratory which is equipped with a customized
instrumented treadmill, a walkway with staggered force plates and a
state-of-the-art motion analysis system.
We have developed an innovative research program that links
meaningful translational research to the promoting of peak
performance and health. We are narrowing the gap between
evidence-based medicine and clinical practice while
furthering research into health care issues including injury
and disease prevention, and exercise intervention.
