The Rehabilitation and Motion Analysis Laboratory incorporates a 10 camera Vicon system (Vicon Bonita 10, 1MP Optical Camera, 250 fps) for motion capture and analysis, 4 AMTI force plates (AMTI OR6-7-1K-SYS Force Platforms) within a flexible grid arrangement for flexible ground reaction force measurement, a ceiling mounted hoist (rated at 250kg) to provide assistance for partial weight bearing activities, and a 16-channel combined wireless EMG and tri-axial accelerometer system for muscle activity measurement.
The Laboratory also includes a custom made, adjustable instrumented staircase, enabling motion and kinetic analysis of a wide range of typical activities (level gait, sit-to-stand, stair ascent, stair descent, deep knee bend, etc), including dual-camera 2D gait recording with our autonomous robot.
The lab is open for research, clinical and teaching purposes and we encourage you to contact us if you are interested in accessing these facilities.
