The BMClab has state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure for the investigation of human movement.


The Laboratory of Biomechanics and Motor Control occupies a space with 180 mat UFABC where we have a 120 m2 room for data collection with our motion capture system, force plates, etc. and three other rooms: one for data analysis with several computers (30 m2), another for subject preparation and evaluation (15 m2), and the third room for a small machine and electronics assembly shop (15 m2).
