Clinical Biomechanics Laboratory

Director, Dr. Raoul Reiser

The clinical biomechanics laboratory has the mission of studying human gait, human lifting technique, and bilateral asymmetries in human movement that may contribute to chronic pain. The lab is equipped with a state-of-the-art multi-camera motion capture device and related image digitizing/image analysis workstation. Force platforms for the measurement of ground reaction forces are located in the center of the room. Portable devices for select exercises (squat, deadline, inclined lifting, etc) are used in the room as a given study demands. There is standard storage cabinetry, and a small adjacent room for subject prep.
