Research & Education


A Difference in Healthcare, Here and Now: The IML research team attracts top healthcare professionals and ensures the availability of cutting-edge therapy and technology to local residents. Our world-class engineers and clinicians work to provide more effective solutions and to improve devices and therapies for a wide array of degenerative conditions.

What differentiates The IML Foundation from others? We support research, patient education, medical technology and professional development. The best surgeons hunger for research. In the same vein, orthopedic surgeons interested in research are frequently those on the edge of groundbreaking mobility solutions.

Through grants, research programs, donations, and fellowships, leading IML Engineers engage with the highest levels of technology to discover novel treatments, procedures, and healthcare products. In partnership with exceptional research development schools, the IML Engineers test the latest designs and medical technology until there is no doubt they will benefit the necessary patient population.

Just a few of the Research & Education areas that IML is actively engaged include:

● Evaluation of treatment modalities
● Testing of new medical technologies
● Pre- and post-implant analysis
● Human mobility programs

Collaborative Efforts: Having achieved a national and international reputation for excellence, The Institute for Mobility and Longevity research efforts are sought by a wide variety of groups and organizations. Universities, hospitals, medical foundations, private industries, and other physicians throughout the world have partnered with us to pursue the revelatory outcomes of the scientific process necessary to advance our mission.

Healthcare: The IML works with medical facilities, adult nursing and assisted living care centers, and in-home care programs. Through the Affordable Healthcare Act, we have seen a great transformation of healthcare in America. Focus is provided on helping our aging population remain active, thereby enabling them to live longer, happier lives.

Good Neighbor: The Institute for Mobility and Longevity works closely with patient home healthcare systems to improve the process and train relevant specialists. We understand the structures, including ACCESS, and we engage similarly with related research and technology. The IML works inside the system to train those in FQAC (Federally Qualified Health Centers) by providing education and resources.

Our ongoing studies include a three-part evaluation, which is summarized as follows:

1. On-site at Assisted Living / Skilled Nursing / Active Adult facilities
2. Clinical studies developed and monitored at the ASU School of Engineering
3. Dual-location evaluation for controlled studies and “real life” environments
