Located in 115a Kimball Tower, the lab is equipped with a Vicon 3-D motion capture system that is integrated with two force platforms, and a 16-channel EMG system for measuring neuromuscular response during locomotion and balance studies.

1 portable Kistler force plate
8 camera Peak Motus video system
8 camera VICON MXF20 system, 500 Hz full resolution, 2 Megapixels
A video from the Biomechanics of Human Movement Laboratory shows a 3D full-body kinematic model of skilled baseball pitching with simultaneous ground reaction force recordings. Stride length variation is then examined from the perspective that timing and sequencing of throwing arm mechanics is altered, thereby increasing susceptibility to throwing arm injury.
