Amplifying Movement & Performance

Established 2018

The AMP Lab provides a collaborative space to build community and do innovative research. Four pictures (1) Dr. Donelan from Simon Fraser University points to his slide in a presentation. (2) The audience raises hands after a seminar - lots of questions! (3) Keshia Peters shows the motion capture system to a visitor. (4) Karley Benoff presents a poster with her work on 3D-printed orthoses.

The AMP Lab is a collaboration at the University of Washington between the College of Engineering and Rehabilitation Medicine that seeks to amplify human and robotic movement and performance.  The AMP Lab seeks to advance our understanding of the dynamics and control of movement to design treatment strategies and assistive technologies that improve function, performance, and quality of life for people in health and disease.

The AMP Lab features a rich sensor suite (high-speed motion capture/videography, instrumented treadmills, force plates, and wearable devices) and infrastructure (bodyweight support system, heterogeneous terrain) to facilitate research that advances understanding of human and robot movement.

Our facility is located on the first floor of Wallace Hall.
