Laboratory-based motion analysis

In our Motion Laboratory at Karolinska University Hospital, Solna, we offer laboratory-based analysis of movements, forces and muscle activity.

The laboratory-based motion analysis provides a detailed portrait of human movement. Apart from the most commonly used setup focusing on walking and mobility, we also offer consultations with regards to how the measurements could be adapted to best address the questions you intend to answer in your specific project.

The lab is equipped with the following:

Vicon motion cameras for 3D motion analysis with synchronized web-cameras which allows us to integrate qualitative and quantitative movement analysis


Kistler force plates for registration of the forces and torques acting on the joints, and postural sway.

Kinematic uMOVE

EMED pedobarography for recording of force and pressure distribution of the foot.


Noraxon electromyography (EMG) for recording of muscle activity.
