Unraveling Wrist Biomechanics Using In Vivo Carpal Kinematics and Instrumented Implant
Biography: J.J. Trey Crisco, Ph.D. is the Henry Frederick Lippitt Professor of Orthopaedics and Professor at School of Engineering at Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital. He began his career as an orthotics and prosthetics technician at the Newington Children’s Hospital and then continued his graduate education Yale University in Applied Mechanics.
Prof. Crisco’s research interests and translational efforts are in three fields: musculoskeletal biomechanics, sports, and pediatric rehabilitation. His work in upper extremity biomechanics is focused primarily on the hand and wrist for which he received the 2017 Kappa Delta Award from the American Academy of Orthopaedics Surgeons and the Orthopaedic Research Society with Dr. Scott Wolfe. His work in sports has focused on quantifying head impact exposure in helmeted sports using novel sensor technology, studying youth and collegiate athletes. Prof. Crisco has also developed toys and assistive technologies focusing on musculoskeletal rehabilitation for children with special needs. For these projects and his work on translational research and social entrepreneurship, Prof. Crisco received the inaugural Goel Award from the American Society of Biomechanics in 2017. His lab has primarily been supported by NIH and he has over 230 peer-reviewed publications. He has served as a member and ad-hoc member on numerous NIH Study sections. He is a former president of the American Society of Biomechanics.
