How does the Mobility Lab work?

Marianjoy therapists apply electronic sensors to a patient's trunk, arms and legs to evaluate trunk rotation, arm movement and other important aspects of a patient's body mechanics during walking. Through continuous testing, these measurements assess therapy and orthotic options with baseline tests, as well as evaluate how particular methods, prosthetics and orthotics are addressing the patient's needs.
