Center for Human Performance Measurement

The center helps researchers study biomechanical aspects of human movement through kinematics and 3D-kinetics from a 3-dimensional perspective. The center’s researchers can capture subtle deviations that may be early warning of pending injury or pathological process.

This facility is the sole provider of such human performance measurement to the region. Center staff are able to provide a comprehensive, interprofessional study of normal and disordered human performance that optimizes function, including walking, running, lifting, carrying, jumping, throwing, or dancing The output of motion analysis provides researchers, educators, health care providers, students, and the public state-of-the-art measures related to human performance of basic daily activities, forms and modes of locomotion, and of elite, skilled or disordered movement.

The Professor Paws Project

The Professor Paws Project works toward educating people who could directly benefit from the use of a service dog. Funding for the course at Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges came from the United Way’s Innovation Grant. The course covered topics such as the benefits of service dog partnerships, the populations of people who could be helped the most by a service dog, the service dog application process, and the laws surrounding service dog ownership.
