Our research is dedicated to understanding the biomechanical factors relating to musculoskeletal injury and performance in occupational settings.  From laboratory studies to workplace interventions, the faculty members in the Occupational Biomechanics & Ergonomics group use a wide variety of tools and approaches to examine the upper extremity (hand, arm, shoulder), spine, and other joints.

Our facilities and research tools include anatomic computer simulation, electromyography, isokinetic systems, 3D motion capture and virtual reality.
