Motion Analysis Lab

This 3,700 square foot space includes a ten-camera motion analysis system, two force plates and sixteen channels of wireless electromyography.  The system enables quantification of all aspects of movement from standing or walking to elite athletic maneuvers. Research in the lab enhances the understanding of mechanisms underlying injury and disease and quantifies improvements in movement in response to rehabilitation.  Other research equipment in the Motion Analysis Lab includes the Biodex Isokinetic Dynamometer to identify, treat, and document the physical impairments that cause functional limitations; the Armeo®spring which supports the recovery of arm and hand function; and Telerehabilitation System for Stroke which measures and analyzes the amount and quality of movements performed when individuals with stroke play virtual reality games on this system.
