|Human Performance Lab|
The Human Performance Lab contains equipment and instrumentation that students are free to use for co-op and senior design projects. The mission of this facility is to understand how to better design jobs, equipment, tools, products, and environments in which people play a significant role, so that human capabilities are maximized, physical stress is minimized, and workload is optimized.
The equipment may be used for both ergonomics and safety applications. Some of the equipment includes:
• Electromyography System (electrodes, preamplifiers, amplifiers, and
• Strain Gage Dynamometer and Amplifier Tektronix Oscilloscope
• Chatillon Push/Pull Dynamometer
• Grip Strength Dynamometer
• Reuter-Stokes Heat Stress Monitor
• Reuter-Stokes Micro-Psychrometer (RSS-230)
• Sekonic Light Meter
• Quantum Instruments Photo-Meter 1 Light Meter
• Sensormedic VMaxST Metabolic Cart
• Polar Vantage XL Heart Rate Monitor and Data Logger
• Sound Level Meter CEL 254
• 10- Penny & Giles Electrogoniometers
• PCs with Data Acquisition and Video Capture Boards
• BTE Work Simulator for measuring human strength
