Neuromuscular Research Laboratory
The Neuromuscular Research Laboratory (NMRL) is the applied research facility of the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Department of Sports Medicine and Nutrition, located on Pittsburgh's South Side.
Research is conducted in the areas related to joint injury where the objective has been to study profiles of an individual's function by evaluating both the sensory and motor characteristics specific to musculoskeletal injury and pathology. Deficiencies in body mechanics and muscle function are used to develop programs to improve performance and minimize potential for injury.
The laboratory houses three separate motion analysis systems for specific task and sport analyses with defined areas for sports physiology, proprioception, postural stability, and strength assessments.
