Department of Biomechanics

Director: Dr. Nicholas Stergiou

The Biomechanics Research Building houses all research conducted by the Nebraska Biomechanics Core Facility, the Center for Biomechanics Research and associated programs. This is an interdisciplinary enterprise that features collaboration between scientists, engineers, mathematicians, surgeons and clinicians to advance the understanding of healthy and abnormal movement patterns. Within the Biomechanics Research Building, research programs are organized into four divisions: neurophysiology of gait, neuromuscular control of balance and posture, robotics and virtual reality rehabilitation and training, and neuromuscular and sensory systems assessment and rehabilitation.
