My research group is interested in the physiology of biomechanics of ligaments and tendons.
|The biological behaviour of ligament and tendon in health and disease.|
|The biomechanics of the lower extremity as it relates to forced dampening across the knee joint – this research has employed accelerometry and forced platform analysis.|
|Analysis of alterations in proprioception and neuromuscular feedback after disruptions of the anterior cruciate ligament. This research has included collaborative efforts with the Division of Physiotherapy (Dr. Marie Earle).|
|The effect of knee bracing on anterior tears of the knee; the effect of knee bracing on degenerative joint disease.|
