Department of Exercise Sciences


The Department of Exercise Sciences offers numerous facilities, which include those within the Biomechanics Laboratory listed below.

Biomechanics Laboratory Facilities


Our laboratory is fully equipped to collect and analyse almost any aspect of human movement. We have an 8-camera 3D motion capture system (Vicon MX system) and a 4 camera SimiMotion Basler camera system. Combined with our three Bertec forceplates, we can provide both 3D kinematic and kinetic data for any movements, both in the lab and out in the field.

There are two electromyography (EMG) systems, a 10 channel MotionLab system and a telemetered Biovision system. Other equipment includes a Biodex machine, treadmill and Novel pressure measurement systems, both in shoe and platform.
