Instrumentation for Analysis of Motion
SAR HP 737
This course will explore the different equipment commonly used for human movement analysis. The course can be taken as a seminar (2 credits, 1 class meeting per week) or with the lab (4 credits). Students will gain an understanding of how the equipment works, the steps to using it, and what research questions can be answered with the different technology. Equipment covered in this course will include 3 dimensional motion capture systems, force plates, gait carpet, electromyography (EMG), musculoskeletal modeling and well as others. Students taking the lab portion will also complete a project using the equipment covered in the course.
