Biomechanics and Musculoskeletal Imaging Lab (Souza Lab)

Publications

A complete list of Souza publications can be found at the bottom of Richard Souza's profiles page.

The Biomechanics and Musculoskeletal Imaging Lab (BMIL) is dedicated to the investigation of biomechanics associated with lower extremity orthopedic pathology. We use 3D motion analysis, quantitative MRI, multi modal dynamometry and EMG to understand predictors of disease progression. The Director, Dr. Richard Souza, PT, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. The team consists of clinicians (including physical therapists, sports medicine physicians, and radiologists), engineers,  exercise physiologists, and computer scientists. The goal of this lab is to identify and evaluate potential prevention and rehabilitation tools for the treatment of patients with lower extremity orthopedic pathology. We are funded by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, the Orthopaedic Research Education Foundation, and the California Physical Therapy Association PT Fund.
