West Point Biomechanics Fort Devens Field Study
The West Point Biomechanics Team supported a 72-hour field study in Fort Devens, MA. Drs. Zifchock, Freisinger, and Steckenrider traveled to Fort Devens, MA for a week to participate in a 72-hour field study hosted by the US Army Development Command Soldier Center. The CME team serve as Associate Investigators in the Army’s flagship human performance study, Measuring and Advancing Soldier Tactical Readiness and Effectiveness (MASTR-E), an expansive multi-year research effort consisting of over twenty different Army, academia, and industry partners. This field study was a central part of this program in which the CME team was involved by monitoring the biomechanics of 70 soldiers using wearable sensors during loaded ruck marches.
