The focus of our kinesiology laboratory is to study human movement and exercise, and their assistive technologies for a physically challenged and healthy people. Our studies measure and analyze performance improvement of functional movements from viewpoint of human body kinetics and kinematics that include physiological, neurophysiological, biomechanical, and psychological systems, when a human receives some interventions from an assistive system that may enhance physical capability of healthy people or ameliorate functional limitation or disability of physically challenged persons. We also focus on research and development of human-machine interfaces as well as physically assistive devices using mechatronics and robotics for more reliable, effective and powerful interventions on exercise training, physical therapy, and function enhancement.
