Musculoskeletal & Orthopedic Biomechanics Lab
Welcome to the MOBL site
MOBL is a lab group in the Biomechanics Lab of the Department of Kinesiology in the School of Public Health and Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The aim of the MOBL group is to enhance human mobility and performance through an examination of the interacting biomechanical and neurophysiological aspects underlying human locomotion. Our work focuses on the mechanisms underlying the loss of normal joint and whole body function associated with aging, pain and joint pathology and the development and evaluation of interventions to improve mobility deficits related to musculoskeletal health.
