Our lab is part of the newly-formed Center for Rehabilitation Engineering & Assistive Technology at Vanderbilt. The center consists of a state-of-the-art 3000 sq. ft. motion analysis lab for human subject experiments, along with individual adjoining rehabilitation engineering labs that house the research groups of Profesor Goldfarb, Profesor Braun, and Profesor Zelik.





Summary of Hardware: Bertec split-belt force-instrumented treadmill, 6 AMTI in-ground force plates, 10-camera Vicon T40 motion capture system, 12-camera OptiTrack motion capture system, Xsens portable motion capture, 16+ channel wireless Delsys Trigno EMG system, Cosmed K4b2 portable respirometry system, Telemed EchoBlaster 128 ultrasound systems, as well as additional portable sensors and rehab/testing apparati (stairs, ramps, treadmills, etc.).

Summary of Computers & Software: Multiple desktop and laptop workstations with Matlab, SolidWorks, Creo Parametric, LabVIEW, Vicon Nexus, Visual3D, and other engineering and biomechanics software.

Summary of Fabrication Facilities: Multiple electromechanical workstations with an assortment of hand and power tools. Additional fabrication facilities are available for use in the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering machine shops, and in the Wond’ry Makerspace (located one floor beneath us).

Additional Facilities: The lab is located in the new Engineering & Science Building, and directly connected to the brand new 13,000 sq. ft. Innovation Center, called the Wond’ry, which contains additional fabrication equipment and collaboration space.
