Successful athletes consistently perform at their best—safely and efficiently. Our technology and experience can help all athletes use their individual talents to achieve their goals.

The Motion Analysis & Sports Performance Laboratory is unique in its ability to help athletes excel. Our technology captures the body’s motion and force and translates it into actionable data that our team of experts uses to create custom improvement plans for our athletes.

For athletes at the top of their game, our technology identifies ways to take their performance to the next level. By taking a virtual look beneath the athletes’ skin, we can pinpoint problem spots and fix them before injuries develop. And for injured athletes, we act as a bridge between physical therapy and safe return to sport. Our methods are based on rigorous science with proven evidence of results.

Our team includes physicians, human movement scientists, physical therapists and athletic trainers. We have decades of elite coaching, training and sports medicine experience and have produced top student athletes that have gone on to receive scholarships at major universities and compete for Team USA at the Olympics. We all work together and harness the power of each athlete’s unique movement to help maximize performance.

The lab adds to the depth of children’s sports and orthopedic services offered at Stanford Children’s Health locations across the Bay Area. Our lab works in conjunction with the Young Athlete’s Academy, our highly skilled team of orthopedic surgeons, the Sports Medicine Center and the rest of the world-class facilities at Stanford to provide the best outcomes for your child.
