Biomechanics at SBES crosses a wide range of topics including injury biomechanics, musculoskeletal biomechanics, and locomotion. Research is application-oriented and wide ranging including impact injuries, blast injuries, sport injuries, work place injuries, and the Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings. Grants from military, industrial and governmental agencies allow a higher degree of analysis than would be possible on educational funds.
