Department of Biomechanics

Josh Baxter, PhD

Dr. Baxter joined the Department of Biomechanics at HSS as a post-doctoral fellow after completing his doctoral studies in Biomechanics from Penn State University in 2012. His research at HSS focuses on how surgical adjustments of foot and ankle structure affect function. The long-term goal of this research is to translate experimental findings using robotic and computational simulation techniques to clinically relevant tools to help improve patient outcomes. Currently, the Foot and Ankle group is developing a robotic gait simulator to help answer questions related to what type of surgical procedures are most effective at correcting deformities of the foot and ankle, such as adult acquired flatfoot.
