The Biomechanics team is dedicated to high quality biomechanical research in the area of sports performance, footwear development, acute and chronic injury prevention and treatment strategies.

Our team is equipped with enthusiasm, talent, experience and state of the art equipment. The research activities are carried out in a world class biomechanics laboratory equipped with 14 cameras (Motion Analysis Corporation), 7 force-plates (Kistler), and a 16 channel telemetric EMG system (Noraxon).

In addition, the team has developed several innovative measurement systems for specific applications such as on-water measurements and rear foot motion measurements.

The 40 m acceleration track, large garage doors and Olympic specification sand pit facilitate the analysis of a number of athletic events.
