Strzelczyk Clinical Biomechanics Laboratory

A page within Physical Therapy

The HSC's Strzelczyk Clinical Biomechanics Laboratory is the hub of the La Crosse Institute for Movement Science (LIMS).  The 2,250 sq. ft. laboratory has capabilities for the acquisition of three dimension motion analysis via a 15 camera system, force and pressure distribution measurement equipment, and electromyography systems.  All Physical Therapy students take coursework in biomechanics, instrumentation, and research in the Strzelczyk Clinical Biomechanics Laboratory. The student research practicum course allows students to work on faculty mentored research projects.

A second laboratory within LIMS is the PACER (Performance Analysis for Clinical Exercise and Running Performance) lab.  There is a 10 camera motion analysis system and instrumented treadmill in this teaching/research space.
