To provide, maintain, and support state-of-the-art tools for non-invasive physical function and biomechanical assessment.
To develop and support novel quantitative tools for assessment of physical function and biomechanics.
To provide interpretation of data and assess links between diverse activity and biomechanical metrics collected and to the relevant clinical or experimental endpoints.
To provide a webportal and forums for stimulating collaboration, learning, and improving upon our current approaches where we will present new research and technology innovation to the REACH and BACPAC communities.
