Our Mission

The Functional Assessment Screening Team’s goal is to develop innovative motion analysis technology aimed at enhancing health and performance.

We are a multi-disciplinary collaborative team of experts in operative and non-operative sports medicine, physical therapy, strength and conditioning, biomechanics and computer science. We aim to use innovative technology to develop inexpensive, efficient, validated and evidenced-based motion analysis tools. The goal of our research is to improve the health and well-being of patients — including athletes — by identifying risk factors for injury, tracking rehabilitation outcomes and optimizing athletic performance.


Our team conducts its research at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute — which includes Mizzou Therapy Services and the Mizzou Motion Analysis Center — and the Human Performance Institute.
