Musculoskeletal Sonography and Occupational Performance Laboratory

Research

Research activities in the MSOP Lab are primarily focused on translating musculoskeletal sonographic imaging from its traditional use in diagnosis into a clinical tool for occupational therapists and other rehabilitation professionals. These studies include advancing investigation of normal and abnormal tissue morphology, developing evaluation techniques for both preventive and clinical applications, and exploring the process and barriers for clinical implementation by rehabilitation providers.

A secondary focus for current research in the lab is the identification of various risk factors associated with work-related musculoskeletal disorders, combined with the development and evaluation of preventive, ergonomic interventions.
