Motion Analysis Lab
Located in McGurrin Hall, the Motion Analysis Lab contains equipment including: Codamotion System, NeuroCom Balance Master, Biodex Isokinetic System, and a Noraxon Surface Electromyography System.
Codamotion System: clinical movement analysis
Codamotion is an easy to use and portable measurement system for applications such as posture analysis, stroke rehabilitation and motor control studies requiring real time feedback. The Codamotion system allows users to clearly quantify and interpret human movement in 3D and in real-time. Capable of analyzing all scales of human body movement.

Principal investigators are Dr. Marlene Morgan and Dr. Karen Brady of the Occupational Therapy Program.
NeuroCom Balance Master
The NeuroCom Balance Master® provides objective assessment and retraining of the sensory and voluntary motor control of balance. With visual biofeedback on either a stable or unstable support surface and in a stable or dynamic visual environment.

Noraxon Surface Electromyography System
Noraxon EMG: wireless, 8 channel telemetry EMG system which can be integrated into the Codamotion System or used separately.
