Neuromechanics Lab (NML)

Force plates

Three types are used in the lab, two AMTI BP600400, three Novotec Leonardo GRFP and one Kistler force plate. The AMTI force plates are integrated into the Vicon motion capturing system, whereas the three Leonardo systems are transportable and only require a Laptop with the Leonardo Mechanography software to record parameters such as peak force, power, center of force displacement or jump height.

Motion analysis

For precise indoor measurements we are working with a Vicon motion capturing system. It is comprised of 12 T40S cameras and enables us to accurately capture high speed human movements. For outdoor measurements we use 12 rugged Casio Exilim EX-F1 cameras recording with a maximum of 1.200 fps. To capture even faster movements we use an EoSens mini2 high-speed camera, which records at a rate of up to 40.000 fps.

Gait analysis

To assess gait parameters such as velocity, step and stride length or step-to-step variability, two ten-meter Microgate Optogait system are being used. Gait analyses play an important role in the clinical assessment of gait stability and fall risk.

IsoMed 2000

The IsoMed 2000 is an isokinetic device that allows us to measure neuromuscular force and power during single-joint movements. With the trunk-modules and the leg-press unit, we are even able to investigate neuromuscular performance in complex multi-joint movements. The powerful drive technology and torsion-resistant construction make the system a high-accuracy measurement tool for neuromuscular performance assessments.
