Our mission is to determine why people fall (and why they don’t) with the goal of remediating balance impairment. We pursue this objective by developing novel tools to assess balance proficiency and fall risk, identifying neuromechanical mechanisms of “better” balance, and optimizing rehabilitation interventions that improve walking balance.
