Clinical applications of biomechanics in knee osteoarthritis

The Mobilize Lab welcomes you to our website! Here you will find information about our research goals, our people, and how you can get involved with our work.

Vision

Our research goal is to identify biomechanical mechanisms that initiate and facilitate articular cartilage and muscle degradation within weight-bearing human joints, and define the range of loading thresholds for degradation of these tissues. 

We are working to achieve this goal in the following three ways:

  1. Introducing cumulative loading to knee biomechanics
  2. Examining the associations between knee biomechanics and tissue morphology and composition
  3. Developing biomechanically-defined physical activity guidelines for knee osteoarthritis (OA)

Getting involved

We are always recruiting participants for upcoming research studies. Men and women, young and old, with and without osteoarthritis, we may have a study that needs you as a participant! If you are interested in participating in any of our research projects, please contact Emily
