The Laboratory for Clinical Biomechanics and Rehabilitation (LCBR) research is a state-of-the-art biomechanics research facility located in the Dynamics of Human Motion Laboratory on the campus of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The LCBR has a clinical focus combining laboratory-based measures of joint function with clinical assessments of participants. Lab infrastructure includes a passive reflective marker-based motion analysis system and active marker-based system, wireless (combined IMU) and wired electromyography systems, four embedded force platforms, an instrumented stairway system, accelerometers, an isokinetic dynamometer and a web-based data capture and management system.
The Laboratory for Clinical Biomechanics and Rehabilitation research is led by Rebecca Moyer (PT, PhD) in the School of Physiotherapy, who is also a Co-Director of the Dynamics of Human Motion Laboratory with Cheryl Kozey (PhD) in the Schools of Physiotherapy and Biomedical Engineering. Our research thrives on an interdisciplinary approach to musculoskeletal health and we incorporate expertise from our research and clinical experience in physiotherapy, movement sciences, orthopaedic surgery and mechanical engineering.
