Human Mobility Research Centre

The Human Mobility Research Centre (formerly the Clinical Mechanics Group) is a multidisciplinary group of clinician-scientists, basic scientists, and engineers interested in the mechanisms of musculoskeletal diseases and disorders (e.g., the cause, the prevention and the treatment of bone and joint disorders caused by arthritis, osteoporosis, and injury).

The HMRL is located in the Regional Ambulatory Care facility at Hotel Dieu Hospital ideally located in close proximity to the orthopaedic clinics. The laboratory fosters interdisciplinary collaborations between engineering, orthopaedics, and rehabilitation that are essential to the focus and innovation of research and translation of knowledge into clinically important applications.
