The Nishikawa Biomechanics Laboratory

Powered Foot Prosthetics Device


The Nishikawa laboratory is a trans-disciplinary group of scientists and engineers who study muscles and movement. Our laboratory's current focus is to understand the variation in muscle force during active muscle length changes. This work has led to many new and exciting ideas about the fundamental principals of muscle physiology. Currently, we have projects in molecular muscle physiology, kinesiology, biomechanics, neurophysiology, and exercise science. Please look around our website to learn about these exciting experiments.
