Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Lab
The human musculoskeletal system is a remarkable engineering system that enables voluntary movement with inherent ease in healthy individuals. Yet, its complexity makes it difficult to understand and treat many orthopaedic pathologies. We study musculoskeletal biomechanics in the context of injury and disease using motion capture, medical imaging, and computational modeling. Our ultimate goal is to integrate insights from our experimental and computational work in the development of effective rehabilitation strategies aimed at restoring and preserving pain-free mobility throughout the lifespan.
