The Center for Human Movement Variability uses the following research spaces:
Slightly smaller than the size of a basketball court with 24-foot ceilings; this laboratory features eight, force plates, an instrumented treadmill, safety harness system and 3D digital motion capture. This laboratory is utilized for research in gait variability in patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease.
A 43' x 29' laboratory housing an instrumented split-belt treadmill, body weight support system, 3D digital motion capture and custom virtual reality set-up. This laboratory is utilized for research in virtual reality effects on gait variability after stroke.
Set up as a traditional living room with couches, tables and lamps, this laboratory features a force plate embedded into a floor. This allows for a natural environment to perform postural development studies in children. This laboratory is utilized for research in development of postural control variability in autism.
The Center has other spaces available for research by the Biomechanics faculty and collaborators:
A 22' x 29' laboratory that features a clinical + research module Balance Manager by Neurocom®, a portable digital force plate and an isokinetic dynamometer. This laboratory is utilized for research in breathing and walking coupling variability in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder.
This is a combination of two rooms the Upper Extremity Robotics Lab and the Surgical Robotics Lab. The Upper Extermity Robotics laboratory is 13’ x 22’ space features an upper extremity rehabilitation robot, a system for brain imaging and a motion tracking system. The Surgical Robotics laboratory was specially designed to host studies in motor learning, specifically as an external work site for local surgeons to receive training on the daVinci robot simulation devices. This 16’ x 26’ space holds all custom equipment that has been built to facilitate these projects.
This space is designed to conduct auditory or cognitive tasks in a 17’ x 12’ sound proof room.
