The BVI Movement Laboratory

The BVI Movement Laboratory is a unique state-of-the-art facility that enables the creation of a wide variety of visual environments within which everyday behaviour can be measured (e.g. locomotion, head, eye and hand movements).  The facility includes a 12-camera motion capture system for fast and accurate measurement of position and movement of body segments in 3D space, a treadmill with an integrated force platform for measuring biomechanical response to visual stimulation, multiple screens used for stereo back- projection of a visual “world” and a mobile eye tracker for capturing the observer’s point of gaze.
