We study innovative behavioral, exercise and motor retraining interventions to improve deficits in movement, muscle, metabolic and performance characteristics in Veterans during physical recovery. The clinical research conducted in our lab using state-of-the-art measurement techniques including marker-based motion analysis, instrumented force plates, muscle performance, metabolic function and performance-based outcomes. Learn more about the Gait Lab.
