Combining neuroscience and biomechanics, our lab aims to better understand how people develop work-related injuries. Identifying injury mechanisms can lead to better workplace design.Michael W.R. Holmes, PhD
Quantifying physical demands in the workplace: Using occupational biomechanics to identify mechanisms of injury
Dr. Holmes was recently a symposium speaker at the 2014 Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Conference, held in St. John’s NL.
