Welcome to the Applied Biomechanics Laboratory, located at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Our expertise is in the neuromuscular biomechanics of human movement, with a special emphasis on aging and disease-related mobility impairment. Our primary research seeks to discover the musculoskeletal and sensorimotor adaptations that underlie a loss of independent mobility, and to introduce creative new approaches for preserving walking ability and preventing falls. We use a highly integrative approach that combines quantitative motion analysis and electromyography with dynamic ultrasound imaging, computational simulation, and virtual reality.
