Engineering Wellness Through Biomechanics Lab

Research to Transform

Here at the Dayton hub for biomechanics research", we are committed to original and significant research. Our research has the potential to transform the clinical assessment and treatment of balance, gait and mobility problems. Our work is supported by strong interdisciplinary collaborations and an outstanding team of student researchers.

Areas of Emphasis
  • Community-dwelling, older adults at risk of falling
  • Standardization of posturography
  • Human movement variability
  • Mobility improvements in individuals with neurological and developmental diseases
  • Mobility deficits, fatigue, and fall incidence in individuals with multiple sclerosis
