The mission of the Orthopaedic Robotics Laboratory is the prevention of degenerative joint disease by improving diagnostic, repair, and rehabilitation procedures for musculoskeletal injuries using state-of-the-art robotic technology. Diarthrodial joint function is elucidated and the roles of the bony and soft tissues assessed. The technology in the laboratory includes novel robotic systems and the lab serves as a multi-disciplinary CORE facility with collaboration promoted between investigators.
