Facilities

The lab is a 55 m3 facility, which houses an MTS machine, kuka roboter, and knee simulator for research purposes (below).

In addition, the lab utilizes the Zebris system which is based on ultrasound technology, for 3D motion capture. We also have the Tekscan k-scan pressure sensors, which are paper-thin sensors that are used to measure pressure, force and contact area at the tibiofemoral joint.
