Currently we have several different projects going on and upcoming in our lab, all of which revolve around biomechanical motion analysis. We collect motion capture data, force data, and electromyography (muscle activation) data. Our projects often deal with strength-based exercises. We have in place a study for a deadlift exercise looking at two different types of lifting bars and different footwear, another study using battle ropes and different loading patterns, and a study using mini elastic bands at different points on the legs during certain stepping exercises.
