Motion Analysis Lab
The Bubba Watson and PING Golf Motion Analysis Laboratory, also referred to as the "Gait Lab," uses state-of-the-art equipment to measure real 3D motion, force and muscular activity to develop personalized care plans. Our highly-trained physical therapists and engineers interpret motion analysis data to help physicians customize treatment plans and measure improvement for our patients.
Our motion analysis uses engineering, entertainment technology and medical expertise to study a child’s movement patterns and muscle activity. Our goal is to reach the best possible outcome for each child and their family.
We are invested in research
Current research and development efforts are focused on assessing gait and stair climbing in children with cerebral palsy, plantar pressures assessments, balance assessments, and sports applications. We are now recruiting for a project to evaluate the biomechanics of typical children and children with cerebral palsy as they go up and down stairs. The information gained from this study will help our physicians and therapists understand the special challenges that children with cerebral palsy encounter and how to help them move more easily.
