HMRL Layout and Equipment

The HMRL is located in the Regional Ambulatory Care facility at Hotel Dieu Hospital ideally located in close proximity to the orthopaedic clinics. The laboratory fosters interdisciplinary collaborations between engineering, orthopaedics, and rehabilitation that are essential to the focus and innovation of research and translation of knowledge into clinically important applications.

Gait analysis in the HMRL

The sophisticated equipment of the HMRL allows researchers to analyze joint angles, oxygen consumption, joint loading and muscle activation during everyday activities. The HMRL provides the necessary infrastructure needed for Queen’s to become a world leader in this new area of health care research.
