HP B04: Biomechanics Lab

The biomechanics lab is located in the basement of the Health and PE Complex. Our students utilize this space for their biomechanics lab course and physical activity of aging course. We have advanced equipment to measure motion in 3D, balance, running and walking gait characteristics, and jumping performance, just to name a few.
