Assistant Professor, Biomechanics

CEHHS Welcomes New Faculty: Joshua T. Weinhandl

Joshua T. Weinhandl is an assistant professor of Biomechanics in the Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sports Studies.  Joshua graduated from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Joshua is an expert in biomechanics and neuromuscular control.  He applies these skills to the study of lower extremity injury mechanics through the use of kinematic and kinetic analyses, and computational modeling.


Joshua’s current research is focused on understanding the risk factors and injury mechanisms for anterior cruciate ligament injuries.  He is also focused on understanding the biomechanical characteristics of ACL deficient and reconstructed knees that lead to the development of knee osteoarthritis.
