Fall 2012 – Volunteers in the Injury Prevention and Mobility Lab

The Injury Prevention and Mobility Laboratory (IPML) at Simon Fraser University is an interdisciplinary group of researchers dedicated to improving the understanding of the biomechanics of human movement, with specific focus on the prevention of injuries and enhancement of mobility. Lead by Dr. Stephen Robinovitch, our research group includes graduate students and post-doctoral researchers in Engineering, Kinesiology, and Health Sciences.

We are currently seeking a team of 5-6 motivated volunteers to assist with video analysis of real life falls. The successful candidates will work with an expert team trained in the analysis process guided by a structured questionnaire.  All volunteers will be provided a manual, and a half-day training session.

Each volunteer should be committed to participating in at least 2 analysis sessions per week (approximately 4 hours total).
