vicon

Musculoskeletal Biomechanics
We use a 6-camera Vicon system for capturing movement, an AMTI-OR 6 forceplate for measuring kinetics, and an 8-channel Delsys / Bagnoli surface EMG system for measuring muscle activity.

   
picarro

Daily Energy Expenditure
To measure total daily energy expenditure (kcal/day) we use the Picarro Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy system. This method produces reliable, accurate measures of daily energy use, daily water use, and body fat percentage.

   
cosmed

Respirometry
For measuring the cost of specific activities, like walking and running, we use a Cosmed K4b2 wearable respirometry system. This system is light and highly portable, making it ideal for measuring oxygen consumption (VO2) and carbon dioxide production outside the lab as well as on the treadmill.
