Center for Brain Rehabilitation and Research

The Center for Brain Rehabilitation and Research facility is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment for the measurement of various movement behaviors. Their current infrastructure includes a ten camera VICON motion capture system, four AMTI force platforms and two portable Bertec balance platforms, two platinum 20 ft GAITRite pressure sensitive walking surfaces and an instrumented h/p/Cosmos treadmill fitted with the Zebris pressure measuring system. The primary research focus relates to the neurophysiological and biomechanical basis of human movement with particular interest as to the effects of normal aging, disease/disorders and injury on movement performance. This research laboratory is designed for multidisciplinary use by faculty and graduate students in Physical Therapy, Human Movement Sciences (HMS), and Electrical and Computer Engineering. Collaboration with the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) and the Virginia Modeling and Simulation Center (VMASC) further allows the center to participate in exciting research projects exploring new technology in the assessment of movement and rehabilitation.
