Changing the World
Advanced Mobility Biomechanics Lab
The Advanced Mobility Biomechanics Laboratory (AMBL), directed by Dr. Jacob R. Rammer, Biomedical Engineering, investigates, develops, and implements new technologies to study human motion and achieve mobility independence for people with disabilities. The team’s smart and connected health approach leverages the latest sensors and software to acquire, model, and analyze mobility and participation data in real-time. AMBL is housed in UWM’s University Services and Research Building (USRB) and comprises two large laboratory spaces with comprehensive motion capture, human performance, computing, and sensor development equipment.
The overarching goal of AMBL’s work is to better meet the needs of people with disabilities in daily life through innovative technology development, and to conduct clinical research to understand and ultimately improve mobility independence, quality of care and quality of life in this population.
