Movement Evaluation Lab

The Movement Evaluation Lab allows researchers to develop and evaluate new diagnostic techniques and therapies aimed at improving the control of movement and mobility. These include treatments that focus on improving the health of the brain, cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal systems in order to maximize the capacity for independent and safe mobility. This lab is situated within the hospital’s stroke rehabilitation unit. Specialized equipment includes motion tracking devices, force plates and pressure mats. Detailed measurements are made of the nervous system (electroencephalography, peripheral stimulation), musculoskeletal system (electromyography) and cardiorespiratory system (metabolic cart, electrocardiography, blood pressure). Training equipment for ongoing trials includes treadmills with body-weight support and specialized ergometers.
