The Applied Biomechanics Laboratory, in collaboration with UNC Healthcare and researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has been awarded an exciting new Pilot Research Grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. The project will leverage our virtual reality infrastructure to quantify standing and walking balance control and response to perturbations in people with MS vs. age-matched controls. Our long-term translational goal is to develop novel and more effective markers of balance and mobility impairment for the detection of disease onset and progression.
