ORISE Research Opportunity at the Environmental Health Effects Laboratory at the Naval Medical Research Unit Dayton (NAMRU-Dayton)
The Environmental Health Effects Laboratory at the Naval Medical Research Unit Dayton researches the physical, physiological and cognitive effects of exposure to environmental stressors, to include chemicals, particulate matter, noise, temperature/humidity and altitude effects, in addition to other physiological stressors (such as fatigue, dehydration, etc).
This research opportunity involves neck and back pain initiatives through activities/projects in support of the Spine Health Improvement Program (SHIP) at the Naval Medical Research Unit Dayton. Participants will take part in projects studying neck and back pain in aviators and aircrew as well as biomechanical systems integration/evaluation. This opportunity provides hands-on, educational experience with biomechanics/ergonomics research, utilization of biomechanical measurement technologies such as motion capture/tracking, studying concepts of electromyography and force transducers in the effects of interventions for the warfighter. The participant will also have the opportunity to collect and analyze biomechanical data as well as gain exposure to DoD collaborations with Air Force and Army colleagues.
