Welcome to the Developmental Biomechanics Lab!
Why do babies kick? The Developmental Biomechanics Lab is exploring this question from the point of view of how movement in the womb affects formation and development of the bones and joints. Mechanical forces are important for normal function of adult bones and joints, and we are investigating if mechanical forces are also important for prenatal skeletal development.
