Biomechanics Lab

The La Trobe Biomechanics Lab is home to high performance sport testing and analysis.

It includes a 40m running track with two in-ground force plates for running gait analysis. An additional four in-ground force plates are located in a general-purpose space, and a specially designed kicking area which opens directly out onto our FIFA accredited pitch.

Alongside the numerous force plates, two sets of VICON 3-D motion capture cameras are used for kinematic and kinetic analysis of actions ranging from walking and running, through to jumping and kicking.
