The mission of the Michigan Performance Research Laboratory is to better understand human movement potential and functionality. To achieve this, we focus research in three main areas: 1) advancing knowledge of the complexity of musculoskeletal injury development, 2) developing novel metrics to assess and monitor real-world performance using wearable sensors, and 3) investigating the biomechanical and motor control consequences associated with changes in body dynamics, age, or skill.

Our goal is to foster physical resilience and functional durability so that athletes and individuals of all ages can maximize their potential and fully participate in the human experience through movement.
