Researchers

Cluster members are internationally recognized experts in the study of human balance and mobility, and share a passion for research that aims to understand the origins of balance deficits and falls. Our research examines the sensori-motor, orthopaedic, psychological and neurological factors that contribute to fall risk in older adults, and individuals with Parkinson's disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, vestibular loss, and traumatic brain injury.
