Neuromusculoskeletal & Metabolic
The Neuromusculoskeletal and Metabolic Core provides assessments specific to skeletal muscle contraction, architecture, volume and oxidative capacity. Dietary intake, energy expenditure at rest and during exercise are measured along with bone density, total body mass and fat-free mass.
Cardiovascular & Pulmonary
The Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Core provides state-of-the-art assessments specific to the heart, lungs and circulatory system. Studies to map the neural circuits that control blood pressure and lung function enable interventions such as spinal cord Epidural Stimulation (scES).
Human Locomotion & Movement Performance
The Human Locomotion and Movement Performance Core provides assessments of gait and stepping and guides development of optimal individualized programs of therapy and interventions for individuals with spinal cord injuries.
Urogenital & Bowel
Neuro-Physiology & Neuro-Imaging
The Neuro-Physiology and Neuro-Imaging Core provides physiological motor and sensory assessments and performs magnetic resonance imaging that allow appropriate adjustments to therapeutic interventions.
