About Dr. Debski:

Dr. Debski's research interests focus on orthopaedic biomechanics and are aimed at elucidating the contribution of ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bone to joint stability throughout the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, experimental and computational analyses are performed to examine the properties of the ligaments and joint capsules; determine ligament forces and joint kinematics; and evaluate the effect of injuries and repair procedures on joint motion. Novel experimental techniques such as a robotic testing system and Shoulder Testing Apparatus rev.4 are utilized to answer research questions. Recent major projects have focused on improvement of diagnoses and repair procedures for injuries to the ligaments, capsules, and bony structures at the shoulder and knee; improvement of rehabilitation for rotator cuff injuries; patellofemoral pain; and robotic technology for biomechanical testing.

Currently, Dr. Debski serves as the Co-Director of the Orthopaedic Robotics Laboratory - a core laboratory facility in the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Bioengineering - and also participates in the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine .
