Welcome to the Biomechanics Laboratory in the Department of Bioengineering at the George Mason University. The Biomechanics Laboratory is comprised of faculty and students from the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Computer Science at Mason.

Current studies aim to develop and apply computational models to study disorders of the oculomotor system and the musculoskeletal system. Specific projects are focused on quantifying measurement of extraocular muscle dynamics in vivo, studying the biomechanics of the rat hind limb to help understand fundamental problems in the neural control of movement, and examining the coordination of extraocualr muscles and biomechanics of strabismus.

The Biomechanics Laboratory is directed by Qi Wei, PhD, Assistant Professor of Bioengineering.
