    Sang Wook Lee’s research interest includes biomechanics of hand and upper extremity, and rehabilitation of neurologically impaired patients. He is also interested in developing proactive ergonomic solutions to work-related hand disorders based on biomechanical analyses of hand and upper extremity musculature. He is a member of the American Society of Biomechanics and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
