This initiative, called the Orthopedic Biomechanics Research Laboratory (OBRL), will spark a paradigm shift in the way medical research will be conducted.
The newly formed OBRL will be housed at Houston Methodist and will soon feature a 16-megapixel, state-of-the-art motion capture system that can visualize and capture the fine details of human performance, making this one of the first medical institutions to acquire this system. By bringing together clinicians with expertise orthopedic care and researchers with the skills to design and develop devices, the partnership aims to improve clinical outcomes through device-based intervention, postsurgical recovery via physical therapy, and/or prevention of injury through the study of human performance.
