Movement Science Lab

About Us

Our research interests are centered on gait and posture control in elderly people and individuals who have movement disorders. Dr. Hsu has been involved in a number of human movement research projects and formulated research studies based on clinical observations. Our team uses motion analysis to study joint and muscle coordination. We also design interventions for low back pain, neck pain, and osteoporosis. Our rehabilitation strategies focused on joint coordination ability, and motor control.

Equipment

  1. Vicon Motion Capture System:
    We are currently using Vicon Bonita System for 3D motion capture. The Vicon Motion Capture System consists of 8 infrared cameras, which can track and measure motion in real time. The ability of the system to capture and model motion in real time has a variety of applications, such as posture and gait analysis, biomechanical and sports research, and animation.
  2. Kistler Portable Force Plate:

    The force plate can measure the ground reaction forces generated by a person standing or moving on it. The force plate uses piezoelectric sensors which can measure the ground reaction force in the three coordinate axes.
  3. Delsys Trigno Wireless EMG System:
    The Wireless surface EMG system consists of 16 EMG sensors. Each sensor has a built-in tri-axial accelerometer and a rechargeable battery. The system is capable of generating 16 EMG and 48 accelerometer analog channel data. The wireless system has its advantage in providing more dynamic applications than the traditional EMG system (no cable arrangement is needed).
  4. Aerogym AG-2000 treadmill:

    The treadmill has adjustable speed and inclination, and several in-built training programs.
  5. National Instruments DAQ system:

    The data acquisition system (DAQ) is capable of simultaneously collecting 80 channels of analog signals (e.g., force plate and EMG) and converting than into digital data.
  6. Body composition analyzer:
  7. Dual-belt balance perturbation instrumented treadmill:
