Our state-of-the-art motion analysis laboratory is located in Boston University’s athletic center (100 Ashford Street). Housed in the laboratory are six recessed force plates, an instrumented split-belt treadmill, an 18-camera optical motion tracking system, a 21-sensor inertial tracking system, a visual biofeedback projector and screen, and a fall prevention harness system.
A private treatment room with a non-instrumented treadmill, fall prevention harness, treatment table, and visual biofeedback station is located adjacent to the main motion capture space. Housed in this space is a portable metabolic measurement system and a 12-lead ECG unit.
Two student and research staff offices provide workspace for up to 10 laboratory members (and an espresso machine).
Our research is made possible by the generous support of the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, and the Boston University Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
