Motion Analysis Lab (MAL)

Using state-of-the-art laboratory and field assessments focused on biomechanics, wearable sensors and robotics, our team of clinicians and engineers is dedicated to enhancing mobility in individuals with mobility-limiting conditions, ranging from stroke to cerebral palsy to traumatic brain injury.

Welcome to the MAL

The Motion Analysis Lab (MAL) at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital brings state-of the art technology and internationally-recognized expertise to the study and treatment of mobility-limiting conditions, including cerebral palsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s Disease. Dedicated to helping you regain and retain your independence, the lab is one of the country’s pre-eminent research labs in the development of ground-breaking robotics and wearable technology for patient rehabilitation. In studying the biomechanics of human movement, our goal is to find the most effective ways to get you moving again.
