Motion Analysis Lab

The Motion Analysis Laboratory uses state-of-the-art equipment to analyze human movement.

We provide quantitative information about movement patterns, joint forces, and muscle activity that is otherwise unavailable through standard clinical tests. Our analyses help orthopedic specialists improve surgical techniques, validate implant designs, develop physical therapy protocols, evaluate pathological movement in patients with neuromuscular disease, and analyze sports performance. Please view the list of our current Motion Analysis Studies if you are interested in participation.

Lab Description


The Motion Analysis Laboratory includes 1400 square feet of space designed to be suitable to monitor various social and recreational activities. Our upper and lower extremity studies focus on determining functional outcomes of common activities of daily living such as reaching, eating, walking, stair negotiation, and transferring to and from a chair. The extended 60 foot room with an 11 foot raised ceiling provides us the ability to perform sports studies such biomechanical golf swing and pitching analyses. A diverse team of engineers, biomechanists, kinesiologists, athletic trainers, and physicians collaborate to provide a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation.
