COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

Photo Gallery

In 2012, our lab underwent some big changes! We went from having a classroom that doubled as a lab to getting some major improvements thanks to a grant written by Drs. Jeremy Smith and Gary Heise and other colleagues in Exercise Science (Drs. Hydock & Schneider). Here are some photos of the renovation: 

From Classroom to Lab Space 

Gunter Hall originally housed the men's and women's gyms. The original gym floor was found under the classroom floor!

The new floor (and who doesn't have a pile of "stuff" after moving?)

New 3D motion capture:

The new lab was outfitted with a 10 camera Vicon motion capture system. 
In addition, we also have a digital video camera to capture video simultaneously with the motion capture.


Preparing for the instrumented treadmill 

We also installed an instrumented AMTI tandem belt treadmill.

During renovation a separate foundation was laid for the treadmill.

Finally done!

After the treadmill installation, and a fresh coat of paint, the lab is ready for some action!
