Focuses

UR Medicine Motion Labs offers two distinct focuses, catering to two unique patient groups, with the expertise of our dedicated team.

Track 1 - Clinical Track
Serves patients with movement disorders or underlying medical conditions impacting their ability to walk or balance. Referrals guide these patients to us for gait analysis, which then informs decisions about therapeutic or surgical interventions. This analysis helps determine the need for braces or prosthetic devices to address movement challenges. We assist patients with a range of neuromuscular or musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain or spinal cord injury
  • Muscular dystrophies
  • Spina bifida
  • Stroke
    • Amputation
    • Hip/Knee/Ankle joint disorders
    • Club foot and other foot deformities
    • Balance disorders
    • Other neurological disorders
