Motion and Sports Performance Laboratory

US News - Stanford Children's Health

Elite young athletes deserve elite technology. The Motion and Sports Performance Laboratory combines state-of-the-art motion-capture technology and years of expertise in the field to help child athletes excel. Our services can help enhance performance, prevent future injury and objectively determine the most effective treatments for existing problems.

The lab’s dynamic motion-capture and computing equipment measures and records the force and motion of joints. Armed with that data, our team makes patient-specific recommendations to help children improve their performance, prevent injuries and recover quickly and safely if they do get injured.

The lab adds to the depth of children’s sports and orthopedic services offered at Stanford Children’s Health locations across the Bay Area. Our lab works in conjunction with the Young Athlete’s Academy, our highly skilled team of orthopedic surgeons, the Sports Medicine Center, and the rest of the world-class facilities at Stanford to provide the best outcomes for your child.
