The MOTIONS Lab

Movement Observation To Impact Optimal Neuromuscular Status

We are a group of clinician-scientists with a common interest in the systematic measurement of human movement and rehabilitation of movement dysfunction.

Benjamin M. Rogozinski, DPT

Dr. Rogozinski is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Physical Therapy, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine. His background is in biomechanics as it relates to normal and pathological gait in the pediatric population. Following graduation from the University of South Carolina in 2004 he accepted a position in the motion analysis laboratory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Greenville, South Carolina. There he was part of collaborative team that utilized clinical gait analysis to develop surgical treatment plans for children with neuromuscular disorders. In addition to the clinical testing and gait interpretation occurring in the lab, he was actively involved in the education of gait analysis interpretation at a regional and national level. Dr. Rogozinski’s primary teaching responsibilities within the DPT program are Course Director for Kinesiology and Biomechanics (DPT 715), Pediatric Rehabilitation (DPT 815) and Strength and Conditioning (DPT 982).
