Title

The Biomechanics Lab and Neuromuscular Control Lab share the following equipment, which is used for both research and teaching.  The forceplates and Vicon Motion Capture System are also used in the Movement Analysis Lab, a new Lab in the basement of the Center for Health Science for biomechanical analysis of human movement as well as interdisciplinary projects.  The Movement Analysis Lab has 4 Kistler forceplates, a Bertec non-metalic forceplate, a flock of birds system, 9 camera optotrack system with motion monitor, an emed plate, a pressure sensitive treadmill, and a Biodex and is used primarily by faculty and students in Physical Therapy, Exercise and Sport Science, and Occupational Therapy.
