More than Movement Analysis
Biomechanics encompasses a wide range of topics including injury biomechanics, musculoskeletal biomechanics, comparative biomechanics, and locomotion.
Our biomechanical research is focused on applications such as impact and crash injuries, blast injuries, sport injuries and rehabilitation, work-place injuries, and the Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings.
Grants from military, industrial and governmental agencies allow a higher degree of analysis than would be possible on educational funds.
