Congratulations to Mélanie Beaulieu and Youkeun Oh on their 2014 AOSSM Cabaud Memorial Award!

The Biomechanics Research Laboratory had 14 publications in 2013. Congratulations to the entire lab for all of their hard work. Check out our new publications.


Welcome to the Biomechanics Research Laboratory (BRL) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor.

Our theoretical and experimental investigations are aimed at reducing the incidence of unintentional injuries in the population. Apart from the pain and suffering engendered, these injuries cost the U.S. tens of billions of dollars per year. Worse, some of these injuries cause lifelong functional impairments.

Research projects are designed to achieve scientific insights to better prevent these problems in the first place, as well as to train students of all ages in multidisciplinary research.
