Department of Kinesiology UPDATES FROM LAST YEAR…

Biomechanics & Sports Performance Laboratory: Dr. Nicole Dabbs has completed construction and development of the Biomechanics and Sports Performance Laboratory. The laboratory is fully operational with the most current equipment and advanced technology including: 3-D motion analysis, 2 force plate, and wireless EMG. The Laboratory had a successful Open House in December where CNS faulty, students, and dean all attended.

Academic Year 2014-2015


Hemodynamic Laboratory: Dr. Michelle Alencar has worked exceptionally hard at planning and developing our first Hemodynamic Laboratory. This lab will be fully functioning with blood drawing station, auto rinse plate washer, microplate incubator, iMark microplate reader, hot plate/stirrer, and quick touch analyzer. The research focuses are on understanding blood based markers of health, fitness, and exercise as it translates into practical applications. We utilize diverse approaches in order to analyze proteins, hormones, and cell cultures in order to assist in teaching and research application. The lab (HP 121) is expected to be up and running by Fall 2015.

Motor Behavior Laboratory: Dr. Amanda Rymal has been working on remodeling the Motor Behavior Laboratory. New floors will be installed, computer work stations will be set up, and TV monitors will be mounted on the walls. Each computer consists of Dartfish Pro, a computer analysis software, to asses and analyze movements. New equipment has been purchased to assist in research and interactive class activities specifically related to investigating the use of observation techniques on performance and skill acquisition. Few examples of equipment include, but not limited to, video cameras, lap tops, portable DVD players, a GoPro, and an IPad. A state of the art eye tracking devise will be purchased this spring.

Pedagogy Laboratory: Dr. Chris Gentry has begun to remodel the Pedagogy laboratory located on the second floor (HP 255) of the Health and Physical Education building. Dr. Gentry has been working with Dr. Hosung So on making the relevant renovations including computers with Dartfish Pro to analyze movement and wireless Bluetooth heart rate monitors.
