The research of the Biomechanics Laboratory involves the Johns Hopkins Departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Pediatrics, Biomedical Engineering, and the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The lab was established in 1997 by Dr. Barbara de Lateur. The broad interests and backgrounds of our team provide a productive environment for researching gait and the biomechanics of movement.
Our work includes measurement of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal function and dysfunction, with emphasis on the relationships between muscle tone, strength, and gait.
Our team are experts in pediatric and adult physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurophysiology and neurosurgery, exercise physiology, biomedical engineering, occupational therapy, biostatistics, and public health.
