Research center expansion supports quantitative research to reduce spinal injuries
An addition and renovation triple the size of The Ohio State University’s Spine Research Institute to accommodate spinal research technologies. The program uses quantitative techniques to identify, prevent, and treat spine problems. It also explores how workplace design can reduce the possibility of spinal injury.
The flexible and open design of the research lab houses two video motion capture labs (each equipped with 36 cameras), a technology-rich conference room, collaboration areas, and a research computer lab that holds up to 50 graduate-level researchers.
The human brain and spinal column inspired the layout and flow of the design.
