Spine and Movement Biomechanics Laboratory

What We Do

In our laboratory, we blend biomechanics, ergonomics, motor control, and computer science to:

  • improve musculoskeletal disorder understanding and prevention;

  • develop and test new technologies and algorithms to objectively score movement quality in clinical, ergonomic and sport settings and;

  • assess whole-body movement stability, control, and loading during functional movements.

Research Topics

  • Spine biomechanics and neuromuscular control

  • Novel measurement techniques

  • Movement strategy & quality assessment

  • Neuro-musculoskeletal modelling 

  • Machine Learning
