About Us

The BEST Lab at Clemson University broadly focuses on basic and applied research in biomechanics and physical ergonomics to enhance human health, performance, and safety in a variety of settings. Our focus areas include:
  • Human performance assessments (strength, motion, postures, and individual differences)
  • Biomechanics
  • Movement control and coordination
  • Motor learning and skills training
  • Work physiology and fatigue
  • Physical human-robot interaction
The application areas of our research has spanned industry, medical, military, and sports domains. Within the industrial sector, our work has included domains such as manufacturing, construction, agriculture, mining, and emergency response.
