IMPACT

 

Through its work, the ADAM Center hopes to provide greater understanding of the influence of training and injury on movement skills throughout the lifespan. Our ability to quantify dance movement is unique and enables us to provide important knowledge concerning the underlying control strategies and biomechanics of highly skilled movements. Our work will further the basic sciences of human movement analysis. We will provide information that can be used to identify individuals at risk of functional loss as a result of musculoskeletal injury, as well as how to maximize movement skills to reduce the impact of injury. Groups that are at high risk of injury, such as dancers and the elderly, will benefit from improved exercise and training routines, as well as more effective rehabilitation interventions to enhance recovery and restore functional movement. Improvements in well-being to any given population accrues secondary benefits to the dance companies, audience, family, and community surrounding those populations.
