  • Quantitative Gait Analysis (a two-hour lecture and discussion - appropriate for medical students, physical therapy students, and other groups interested in learning about what data is collected, as well as how and why the data is collected)
  • Cost/Benefit of Biomechanical Gait Analysis
  • Prosthetic Foot Habituation Time of a Subject with Unilateral Fibular Hemimelia - A Pilot Study

Grand Valley State University (GVSU) Affiliation with Mary Free Bed's Motion Analysis Center

We are affiliated with GVSU's physical therapy program. The Motion Analysis Center staff serve as adjunct instructors to physical therapy graduate students at GVSU, in the areas of biomechanics and gait analysis and are eligible to serve as research project advisors. A portion of the start-up funding for the Motion Analysis Center was received from the Steelcase Foundation with help from the Development Office at Grand Valley State University.
