Aside from conducting clinical assessments, the staff in the motion analysis center also performs clinical research related to the care and treatment of children with cerebral palsy, brachial plexus palsy, leg amputations, scoliosis, club feet and other diagnoses.

The clinical research is performed to better understand these diagnoses and to advance the care provided at Shriners Hospitals for Children Medical Center — Lexington.

The motion analysis center is currently recruiting for the following studies:

  • Ground Reaction Forces in Children with Unilateral Lower Limb Amputations
  • Oxygen Consumption and Pulmonary Function in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Patients Pre- and Post-Surgical Intervention
  • Involved and Uninvolved Changes in Post-Operative Unilateral Pediatric Elbow Fractures
  • Development of a New Method to Measure the Upper Extremity Reaching Workspace in Children with Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy and in Typically Developing Children
  • Functional Changes in Children Undergoing Operative Intervention for Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)
  • Able-bodied Gait, Oxygen Consumption, and Upper Body Weight-Bearing Data
