motion in both the laboratory and field-based environments. The BRL is
committed to developing innovative strategies, based on rigorous applied
biomechanics research, to decrease injury potential and to optimise the
quality of life for individuals of all ages. Research within the BRL is
primarily focused on the biomechanics of injury prevention with a specific
interest in four main areas of focused research excellence, including:
landing mechanics and injury prevention; foot structure, foot function and
footwear design; biomechanics of breast health; and innovations in
biomechanics. For more information about the BRL please visit
