Motion Analysis Center
The Motion Analysis Center is a modern facility dedicated to the study of human movement. Housed in the Physical Therapy Program, the center emerged from a partnership between The Herbert H. & Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions and the College of Science and Engineering. The center's mission is to create an environment that promotes collaboration among a diverse group of researchers and the integration of theoretical knowledge with clinical experience.
- Latest in motion capture technology, virtual reality equipment, and custom devices developed at Central Michigan University.
- Research in virtual rehabilitation, human development, biomechanical modeling, motor control, and development of quantification tools for the clinic.
