The human movement laboratory is dedicated to the investigation of gait, balance and mobility in older people linking with the research themes of the Biomedical Research Centre in Ageing.
Using state-of-the-art technologies, investigators are able to test hypotheses related to kinematics, kinetics, motor control strategies, and therapeutic interventions associated with both normal and pathological movement dysfunction. This facility also supports the key aims of CARU to develop early assessment and intervention strategies (covering pharmacological, surgical and rehabilitation) for optimised diagnosis and early targeted treatment.
The laboratory is equipped with:
