Advanced optical motion analysis systems (Vicon and Peak Motus)
A state-of-the-art Vicon motion analysis system, with multiple high-resolution cameras and the most updated video management software, is available. We have Body Builder software which allows easy and quick implementation of biomechanical models. The system can be synchronised with the force plates to determine joint torques, work and power. Moreover, the Peak Motus 3-D motion analysis system is available for motion tracking using ordinary cameras. This system can also be used outside the laboratory.
Kistler force plates
Three force plates are mounted in the floor in a flexible manner, and can be used to measure ground reaction forces in three dimensions and centre of pressure.
Biometrics Electromyography, Goniometers and 3D Accelerometers:
Muscle activity data are collected by the Biometrics advanced electromyography system, and body motions by goniometers and accelerometers. This equipment is complemented by a portable data logger and software for real-time display and analysis.
