Cutting-edge research

The Functional Orthopedic Research Center of Excellence (FORCE) Laboratory is part of the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program and kinesiology program at Oregon State University — Cascades.

The FORCE Lab provides cutting-edge research and intervention strategies for injuries – especially knees, ankles and hips – creating a perfect match with Central Oregon’s population of elite and recreational athletes. We seek to optimize musculoskeletal function and performance, prevent injury, and promote general well-being through the study of human movement.
