Overview

The Biomechanics Laboratory at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living (ISEAL) is a state-of-the-art 436m2 reconfigurable space in which advanced sports and gait research can be undertaken. The lab features a 30m internal N-S runway with 6 embedded AMTI force plates and a large door opening to an outside open space that facilitates real world studies such as ball kicking, running, etc.  A 12 metre ceiling allows filming with low image distortion, and also offers specialised analysis opportunities such as 3D high jump motion. The lab can be divided into four separate spaces for concurrent usage.

Benefits

Examples of Services available:

  1. Data collection of basic human gait using Gait-Rite walkway or in-ground AMTI force plates and Bioware software. Typical output results can be provided.
  2. Full gait analysis including forces and moments integrated with 3D motion capture, EMG and F-scan insoles.  Expert analysis can be provided.
  3. Data collection of sporting activities with any combination of in-ground forces, moments, 500Hz 3D indoor and outdoor motion capture and 4000Hz high speed video.  Ball trajectory tracking is available. Expert analysis can be provided.
  4. Custom interfacing and synchronisation between proprietary systems depending on analysis needs.
