Balance Control Laboratory

Balance Control Laboratory:  The Balance Control Laboratory (BCR).  The lab is used for teaching and research. The BCR was created in 2010 and currently houses a 2.4 m diameter rotating platform, dual-direction treadmill (Landice, NJ), rate table motor with servo-controller (Neurokinetics, PA) for controlling motion of the platform, generating balance perturbations or eliciting curvilinear walking.  Kinematics can be measured with potentiometers, 2-D video capture, and dual-axis tilt sensors.  Custom tendon vibration devices, visual occlusion spectacles, and research software are available within a 40-channel input / 10-channel output capacity real-time data acquisition hardware. 3 computers are available for data collection and analysis.
