Movement Function

Movement Function Research Laboratory

This state-of-the-art laboratory has been established to assess movement function, dysfunction, and rehabilitation with a focus on movement re-training. The multidisciplinary team has an exceptional mix of expertise covering biomechanics, gait analysis, musculoskeletal injuries, and motor control.

The equipment includes a software driven moving platform together with a virtual reality video screen
(http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/bie/chasci/www.e-motek.com), and a complete clinical motion analysis system (www.vicon.com) with video, force platforms, analogue inputs, and EMG. The unique combination of equipment allows a precise control and assessment of dynamic stability.

The envisaged target areas are orthopaedics (foot disorders, orthotics/prosthetics, physiotherapy), gait disorders (tripping/falling, development), neurological conditions (Parkinson’s disease, spasticity, stroke).


For further details about the project and to discuss areas of application please contact Dr Gabor Barton or Prof. Lee
