Welcome

The Human Neuromechanics Laboratory is a research laboratory that focuses on the neural control and biomechanics of human locomotion. We use a range of techniques in biomechanics, neuroscience, and biomedical engineering to study how humans walk and run, both in health and disability. Some of the techniques we use are mobile brain imaging, lower limb bionic prostheses, and lower limb robotic exoskeletons. Lab equipment includes a force instrumented treadmill, overground forceplates, high-density electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and a 20 camera motion capture system. Our goals are to develop new technology for assisting with human locomotion, merging human and machine with mechatronic brain-computer interfaces.
