Falls and Mobility Research Laboratory
We employ clinical and biomechanical analyses of mobility and balance, including tests of fall recovery. These analyses guide specific exercise interventions that improve fall recovery, subsequently improving balance self-efficacy, reducing falls, and enabling physical activity.
Our research is intended to benefit older adults, individuals with chronic stroke, children with cerebral palsy, individuals with Parkinson’s disease, and people living with lower extremity amputations.
Under the direction of Dr. Jeremy Crenshaw, the Falls and Mobility Laboratory used in the STAR Health Sciences Complex safely mimic slips and trips, like those on ice, to learn how to better stabilize your body and prevent harm during falls.
