Clinical Research

The Center of Achievement is committed to providing evidence-based interventions and extending scientific knowledge to a larger community through clinical research. The Center is actively engaged in collaboration with various health professionals and science communities through grant projects, research publications, and conference presentations.

The APA and Motor Performance Laboratory in the Center is equipped with various biomedical research tools, including a 3D motion analysis system (Vicon), dynamic posturographic balance equipment (NeuroCom), a underwater motion analysis system, a telemetric metabolic system (Cosmed), and a strength dynamometer (Biodex).

The Center faculty and graduate researchers regularly participate and present research projects in professional meetings in APA, sports medicine, and rehabilitation. Additionally, the Center hosts various workshops, conferences, and certification training classes in association with major health and disability organizations. Listed are the excerpts of research projects recently presented:
