MORE Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to Keeping Life in Motion through innovative research, community education and charitable assistance programs. The Foundation conducts both laboratory based and clinical research in collaboration with physician groups and leading healthcare organizations such as The CORE Institute and HOPCo. Our biomechanics lab is home to the most advanced robotic testing systems in the industry. Our Human Motion Laboratory uses advanced motion analysis techniques to measure the movement of the body before and after different treatment interventions. MORE Foundation's clinical research program conducts multiple clinical studies of orthopedic devices, pharmaceuticals and rehabilitation protocols each year to help advance the standard of patient care. Our programs are staffed with clinicians, clinical research specialists, bioengineers and scientists who are truly dedicated to our mission.
MORE Foundation is accredited by ArMA as a provider of medical education (CME) and we work with multiple societies and entities to review and accredit educational courses. Our charitable assistance programs deliver free prosthetic hands to children who are not able to obtain prosthetics through traditional care pathways and provide free rides to military veterans that are unable to reach medical appointments without assistance.
