Center for Biomechanical Engineering Research

CBER is an interdisciplinary center whose mission is to provide engineering science and clinical technology to reduce the impact of disease on the everyday life of individuals. CBER builds on a history of interaction between the Departments of Mechanical Engineering, Physical Therapy, Biological Sciences, and Kinesiology and Applied Physiology. A number of research topics are being addressed involving sports medicine (especially ACL injuries), medical imaging (especially MRI and ultrasound), modeling the neural control of limb movements, the use of FES and robots in rehabilitation following stroke, the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis, modeling fatigue in skeletal muscle, and fluid and solute transport in bone.
