The lab simply could not run without dedicated volunteers and study participants. Volunteering as a participant is an excellent way to gain exposure to the lab environment and learn more about the field of research.
Volunteering as a research assistant is an excellent way to gain hands-on experience and develop a strong foundation for future biomechanics research. Volunteer research assistants partake in numerous aspects of research including:
- Working alongside skilled and knowledgeable graduate students
- Learning data collection techniques involving Electromyogram (EMG), motion capture (Optotrak), accelerometers, force plates, tether releases, velocimeters, high-speed video, and pressure plates
- Introduction to data processing techniques using LabVIEW and MATLAB
If you have an interest in biomechanics research and believe you could be an asset to the lab please complete the volunteer form.
