Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Sciences Study Section [MRS]

The Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Sciences [MRS] study section evaluates applications pertaining to the biological mechanisms and therapeutics of impaired physical functioning, as well as exercise and physical manipulation as rehabilitation strategies as they relate to the musculoskeletal system.



  • Rehabilitation strategies related to neural control of movement (including stroke, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease) and function (including carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injuries, low back pain) as well as strategies to prevent additional disabilities.
  • Studies of gait and movement involving kinematics of movement and neural control of movement or function in altered states as compared to normal.
  • Motor control in integrated limb function including studies of individuals with impairment or altered function compared to normal.
  • Robotic interventions to restore limb function.
  • Biomechanics related to skeletal muscle activation and control in rehabilitation.
  • Rehabilitative therapeutic interventions of the musculoskeletal system.
  • Patient-oriented studies of rehabilitative medicine.
  • Mechanisms of exercise in relation to disability.
  • Use of traditional and alternative therapies in the treatment of physical impairments.
