Movement Science Lab
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Dallas, Texas
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is world-renowned for its care of pediatric patients with orthopaedic and related neuromuscular problems. TSRHC is a financially stable hospital with a substantial endowment for the support of its highly productive research program. Patient care and associated research are driven solely by the needs of the patients and are free of the constraints imposed by external managed care organizations.
TSRHC has a modern, fully-equipped Movement Science Lab in a 2500 square foot facility. Equipment includes: 8-camera Vicon 512 motion capture system, Motion Lab Systems MA100 EMG system (10 channels), 2 AMTI force plates, Biodex System 3 Multi-joint isokinetic machine, Cosmed K4b2 Portable Gas Exchange system, and a Novel EMED SF pedobarograph (4 sensors/cm2). The lab currently has four full-time staff, plus a secretary. At any time, there are at least 20 research projects in which the lab is a participant. Some projects may involve movement of the upper limbs and the spine, as well as the lower limbs.
