Vision and Mobility Laboratory

The Vision & Mobility lab, funded by Department of Health, The Health Foundation, PPP Healthcare and NIHR, is a state-of-the-art research facility which allows the evaluation of visual contributions to gait and mobility, including stair negotiation.

The Lab in Action

vision lab with people using motion sensors

On the left, a subject is fitted with reflective motion tracking tags. In the middle, he steps onto a small platform. On the right, the motion-tracker uses the information to reconstruct the subject’s position and stance.

The lab quantifies human movement using a 6 camera Vicon MX3 motion analysis system, and 2 AMTI force platforms. Adaptations in movement pattern are quantified using various biomechanical models
