About the Mobility and Falls Lab

We are an interdisciplinary research team dedicated to helping improve the health and well-being of individuals living with and without chronic conditions. Our research focuses on examining the predictors, prevention, and consequences of mobility impairment. We specialize in the objective measurement of walking and balance as well as the prevention of falls and fall-related injuries across the mobility spectrum. Our research is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) and the National Institute of Disability Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
