Our Tools

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.

We aim to reduce ambiguity in neurorehabilitation practice through two interrelated areas of research discovery: Rehabilitation Processes and Intervention and Technology Development.

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.
