Welcome to the Biomechanics Labs
The Biomechanics Lab is led by Dr. Xu Xu in the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Biomechanics applies the laws of physics and engineering concepts to describe human motion and forces exerted on body segments during various daily activities. In our laboratory, we use biomechanics to prevent occupational injuries and to improve working and living safety. We also integrate the knowledge of biomechanics with other technologies, such as wearable sensors and augmented reality, to promote human performance.
The laboratory also provides undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to use some of the most cutting-edge equipment in biomechanics studies and gain necessary research experiences.
