Working to understand and prevent injuries across the lifespan
Research with an impact
The Injury Biomechanics and Aging Laboratory (IBAL) is currently working to expand the knowledge of musculoskeletal biomechanics related to human health and injury prevention, and the role that advanced age has on these relationships. The general research fields can be divided into:
- Balance and falls
- Head impact and helmet testing
Professor Andrew Laing is the director of IBAL and an associate professor at the University of Waterloo. Professor Laing leads the research team of graduate and undergraduate students.
