Leon Root, MD, Motion Analysis Lab: Full Accreditation

Orthopedics This Week—October 6, 2017

Orthopedics This Week reported that the Leon Root, MD, Motion Analysis Laboratory at HSS received full accreditation by the Commission for Motion Laboratory Accreditation (CMLA).

Howard J. Hillstrom, PhD, director of the motion analysis lab, spoke about the accreditation process to OTW. "Led by Sherry Backus, a comprehensive document was prepared that addressed every operational and technical aspect of the LRMAL. From the training of new physical therapists to the manner in which we calibrate and verify proper function of our equipment each detail was required."

"The process is designed to demand self-reflection and self-evaluation of each candidate laboratory," said HSS physical therapist Sherry I. Backus, PT, DPT, MA. "The accreditation provides an assurance for patients that their gait analysis in the Leon Root, MD, Motion Analysis Laboratory will provide accurate and repeatable results as treatment plans are developed."

"Patients are why we do clinical movement analysis, to provide the highest quality data from which complex treatment plans may be developed to improve outcomes. Further, patients are why we conduct research, to improve the way in which we plan treatments and evaluate new treatments for future patients," noted Dr. Hillstrom.
