GivingBack-1

Teaching and learning: At The IML Foundation, we translate research into teaching, then teaching into learning. Our engineers and scientists present their findings at educational courses and activities to the general public and medical professionals from around the world. The IML works with the most advanced technology and research, often at the University level to help orthopedic professionals stay up to date on patient care.  Learning takes place in real time with the use of live telecasts from the operating room or laboratory. Educational institutions such as University of Arizona, University of Florida, Florida Atlantic University, Barry University, Harvard, MIT, Clemson and Oxford have invited our researchers to share the results of their efforts.

The IML Foundation was awarded international acclaim for its research contributions. Whether it be a lab tour, assistance with a school project or a summer internship, IML works to encourage future researchers, scientist and clinicians to lead the world in innovation for healthcare. Aspiring young minds from the local high schools have the unique opportunity to participate in the multi-faceted operations at The IML. Medical students and colleges from around the work directly with specialized physicians and engineers to apply new technology directly to patients and help discover better ways of solving medical problems.

Education:  Education remains one of the keystones at The Institute for Mobility and Longevity’s cause.  Through generous donations, the IML is able to sponsor students at all levels of support.  The IML sponsors numerous students through scholarships, internships and work-study programs.  Not only do they engage with the Engineers from The IML program, they are testing the latest medical equipment designs, treatment modalities, implant succession and motion analysis. A student can be sponsored for as little as $1,000 in monetary support, advanced learning experiences, internships and research project engagement.

Sports biomechanics:  In recognition of the active adult lifestyle, The Institute for Mobility and Longevity uses advanced motion analysis assessments to understand how injuries.  How injuries occur, how the brain reacts, how they might be prevented, and how to enhance healing.  The IML studies these injuries for recreational and professional sport injuries.
