The Spine Biomechanics Laboratory is a basic science research laboratory which has been a productive part of the Spine Center of New Jersey. Engineers and neurosurgeons investigate and analyze the data produced from testing various spinal products and medical devices to determine their mechanical efficiency and specifications. Projects conducted in the lab are generally industry-sponsored. Dr. Robert F. Heary, Director of the Spine Center of New Jersey, envisioned this research and established the Spine Biomechanics Laboratory.
