GRRL Lab

Doctor of Physical Therapy Facilities

» State-of-the-art facility located in Irvine, California

+ - 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.

+ - Anatomy Wet/Dry Lab

One space used for human tissues that are considered “dry.” The other houses our resident cadavers.  The dry lab fits 29 and the wet lab fits 49 people comfortably and is equipped with 8 flat screen TVs (three in Wet/Dry lab and five in Cadaver Lab), multiple microscopes, individual extension cords so all students can bring in their personal laptops and electronics.  A rolling camera cart allows for viewing of dissections that are occurring from the cadaver room, and the viewing can be presented in the dry lab.  This camera allows for more students to learn the dissection, and not overcrowding near a specific specimen. A rolling computer cart, AppleTV and HDMI Laptop connection are provided in each room.

+ - Exercise Equipment Lab

This space has a collection of exercise equipment such as Treadmills, Exercise Bikes, and Weight Systems for classroom and research use.

+ - Home Health Lab

This lab area resembles a home including hospital bed, range, refrigerator, cabinets, washer, dryer, restroom, and sitting area in order for students to learn and practice rehabilitation skills needed for home environments.

+ - Musculoskeletal Lab

Four dividable rooms of lab and classroom space for up to 132 students.  Lab equipment includes 24 treatment tables, room cameras, skeletal models, and various ultrasound and other modalities units. Each room has a separate AV System that can be controlled individually or combined to create one large room. A rolling computer cart, AppleTV and HDMI Laptop connection are provided in each room.

+ - Neuromuscular Lab

Three dividable rooms of lab and classroom space for up to 76 students. Lab equipment includes 12 Hi-Lo treatment tables, room cameras, a patient lifter, wheelchairs, training stairs, and various other implements for caring for patients with neurological needs. Each room has a separate AV System that can be controlled individually or combined to create one large room (rooms 150 and 151 only. Room 153 is a stand-alone room.) A rolling computer cart, AppleTV and HDMI Laptop connection are provided in each room.

+ - Pediatric Teaching and Research Lab

This one-section lab area makes use of the Coda Motion Capture system which can capture bilateral upper and lower extremity movements, pressure mat which can detect pressure changes associated with weight shift changes, and an infant table which is a raised table on which to place infants during investigation of infant movement.
