We lead the Mobilize Center, whose mission is to harness the vast amounts of data that have been collected by hundreds of research labs and millions of wearable sensors to improve human movement across the wide range of conditions that limit mobility, including cerebral palsy, osteoarthritis, obesity, and running injuries.
