Collecting and publishing data
The following populations have unique musculoskeletal function and fatigue demands that can often be improved with exercise:
- Younger adults
- Competitive athletes
- Healthy populations
- Older adults
- Tactical athletes

Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA)
This machine allows us to quickly and painlessly scan the entire body to measure bone, muscle and fat mass. We can also look at specific areas of the body that are often more affected by bone fragility fractures such as the lower spine, hips and wrist.
This is a dynamometer that allows us to study strength and power of multiple muscles in the arms and legs.
