Postcard from Pasadena:
Human Performance Laboratory
University of Southern California 

The Human Performance Laboratory is a university research facility within the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at the University of Southern California. The location of the laboratory in a private physical therapy clinic and sports training facility in the community of Pasadena allows for unique opportunities for clinical research beyond those of traditional university research laboratories. The Human Performance Laboratory is dedicated to the investigation of typical and impaired mechanics as they pertain to safe and optimal participation in sports and physical activities.

Our research projects emphasise on improving outcomes following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLr) and on understanding the mechanics of athletic maneuverability across ages and their relationship to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury risk and physical activity behavior. Our work aims to contribute to the development of effective rehabilitation and injury prevention programs.

Although restoration of normal lower extremity mechanics is one of the primary goals of rehabilitation following ACLr, compensatory strategies that shift the mechanical demands away from the knee extensors of the reconstructed joint have been found to persist up to two years post-operatively. Motion analysis tools including force platforms, cameras and EMG allow us to detect the presence of compensatory patterns during functional tasks and across rehabilitation.

Upgrading our laboratory motion analysis system to BTS was important to us for 2 reasons: firstly BTS offers all of the systems we need analyze movement (force plates, cameras and EMG) which allows for smooth integration of all data that is sometimes difficult when combining products made by different companies and secondly the system is flexible enough to collect data for research purposes as well as perform instrumented movement screening assessments.
