Computational, Robotics & Experimental Biomechanics (CoRE) Lab

Computational, Robotics, and Experimental Biomechanics (CoRE) Lab

The study of biomechanics is defined as the application of engineering techniques to biological systems. The study of biomechanics has many different paradigms. The broad scope of the discipline includes theoretical and experimental approaches, human and animal studies, molecular analysis, and whole body analysis.


CoRE Lab researchers use the techniques of biomechanics to investigate the structure and function of the human musculoskeletal system in many contexts. These include: robotic studies of isolated anterior cruciate ligaments, monitoring of patients after total knee joint replacement, and remote sensing of human movement during space travel.

The CoRE Lab utilizes parallel and linear robots, body-mounted sensors, finite element models, and motion capture techniques.

The CoRE Lab Research Topics include:

  • Experimental Biomechanics
  • Robobitcs
  • Computational Biomechanics
