Scott is the Director of the John MacIntyre mLAB (motion Laboratory of Applied Biomechanics), which is located in AAC 2010 in the Acadia Athletics Complex. This new lab is used to conduct detailed biomechanical and neuromuscular analyses on a wide range of athletes (varsity and adolescent) as they perform various athletic maneuvers, both within the mLAB and within their true practice/game environments (e.g. gymnasium, artificial field turf and ice arena). The main goals for the mLAB research team are: i) to gain insight into the mechanisms and risk factors of athletic injuries (e.g. non-contact ACL injuries), ii) to use the acquired knowledge on injury mechanisms to help prevent injuries and iii) to establish research collaborations with the sporting equipment industry (e.g. adidas) to test and help develop new footwear and sporting equipment that will not only enhance athletic performance, but also help minimize the risk of athletic injury.
