Rehabilitation, Athletic Assessment, & Dynamic Imaging (READY) Lab
UCF Athletic Training Program
The READY Lab aims to advance neuromuscular assessment, musculoskeletal imaging, and rehabilitation methods for the lumbopelvic-hip complex, while improving the understanding and delivery of patient care for active individuals with chronic musculoskeletal injury. The READY Lab analyzes spatial, mechanical, and electrical changes in muscle activity during static, dynamic, and sport-specific tasks using innovative applications of ultrasound imaging and surface electromyography. The use of biofeedback programming for ultrasound imaging, electromyography, and inertial measurement units to improve patient rehabilitation and recovery is integral to the mission of the READY Laboratory.
The READY Lab analyzes spatial, mechanical, and electrical changes in muscle activity during static, dynamic, and sport-specific tasks using innovative applications of ultrasound imaging and surface electromyography. Chronic musculoskeletal injuries examined by the READY Lab investigators include: low back pain, patellofemoral pain, and a variety of other injuries involving the lumbopelvic-hip complex.
Meet Our Team
Selected Relevant Publications
Our laboratory makes a concerted effort to publish our findings in respected academic journals and present at regional, national, and international conferences. In addition to contributing to collective body of knowledge in a given field, presenting original data at conferences is a fun way for the lab’s students to enhance their self-confidence and network with other scientists.
The UCF REhabilitation, Athletic assessment, & DYnamic imaging (READY) Laboratory is housed in the Education Complex and Gym, (ED 174) on UCF’s main campus.
