Welcome to MoBL!

Welcome to The Movement Biomechanics Lab (MoBL). We are located in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NC State University.

Our Goal: Improve function and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal injury in the upper limb through improved understanding of musculoskeletal structure-function relationships.

We integrate functional assessments of movement performance and quantitative analysis of muscle and bone structure from medical imaging and anatomical studies with detailed computational simulations of upper limb function, mechanics, and neuromuscular control in healthy and impaired populations.
