Center for Human Performance Measurement (CHPM)


The Center for Human Performance Measurement (CHPM) is a Re-charge Center Facility directed by Dr. Yo Shih, Professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences.  The CHPM is equipped with a 12-camera Qualisys™ motion capture system with 4 in-floor AMTI™ force plates and a 16-channel Noraxon™ electromyography system. All processed data are analyzed through a Visual 3-D™ software package.

Center staff are able to provide a comprehensive, interprofessional study of normal and disordered human performance that optimizes function, including assumption of sitting, walking, running, lifting, carrying, jumping, throwing, or dancing. The output of motion analysis provides data and reports to 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.
