The motion analysis system at the Human Performance Laboratory is a first-of-its-kind functional analysis system for both research and clinical applications. The system consists of an all-digital 10 camera real-time 3D motion analysis system. It is used in studies involving:
- Injury prevention
- Performance enhancement
- Training and rehabilitative treatment methods
- Surgical outcomes
The information gained from the Human Performance Laboratory is invaluable to physicians, therapists, trainers and coaches who want to help athletes achieve peak performance and an injury free season. The Human Performance Laboratory is also developing an injury-screening test that will help identify those athletes who might be at a greater risk for sports injuries.
The return-to-sport assessment is used with athletes who are recovering from an injury that has left them sidelined. Our experienced sports biomechanists will assess the athlete upon completing physical therapy, which will help determine if he or she is ready to return to full competitive activity.
