Our Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory is our #ARUplaces of choice this week! The Gait Lab, located in our Postgraduate Medical Institute building is equipped with a state-of-the-art three dimensional VICON motion analysis system, ground-embedded force platforms and a range of pressure sensing technologies to gather high quality 3D analysis of all human movements. All this equipment allows the examination of a wide variety of movement patterns - ranging from everyday tasks such as walking and stair climbing, to more specific and faster sporting movements. This world-class facility is the only one of its type in Essex and is dedicated to providing applied research and tailored movement assessments that are available to all, from elite athletes through to those seeking general health and wellbeing. Want to see it in action? Now, our scientists are calling on the public to capture the "Essex Swagger" - read the full story here:
