Goel Award: Professor Trey Crisco
Trey’s research interests and translational efforts are in three fields: musculoskeletal biomechanics, sports, and pediatric rehabilitation. His focus in upper extremity biomechanics is the hand and wrist where years of basic science led to the development of a novel wrist implant design presently in clinical trial in England and under review by the FDA. In sports, he has focused on the performance of sports equipment and invented an approach for measuring head impact exposures in helmeted sports. He has designed and developed play platforms as an approach to therapy for children with upper extremity impairments, and has designed and fabricated adaptors for joggers with the aim of enabling children with special needs and their families to enjoy a healthy and mobile life. Since joining ASB as a student in 1987, Trey has been the recipient of the ASB Post-Doctoral Award, and served as Membership Committee Chairperson, Program Chair, Meeting Co-Chair, President, Fellow, and Committee on Fellows.
