The UW Neuromuscular Biomechanics Laboratory conducts research on the biomechanics and neuromuscular coordination of human movement, with applications in orthopedics and rehabilitation. Our experimental facilities include capabilities to record three dimensional kinematics, kinetics and dynamic images during movement. Computer simulations are used to characterize musculotendon dynamics, estimate internal loadings and test principles guiding movement control. The overall goal of the research is to establish a scientific basis for the clinical treatment and prevention of impairments that limit locomotor performance.
