Golf Swing Analysis

The Nipissing Biomechanics lab is now proud to offer full golf swing analysis services using our state of the art motion capture camera system.  For just $150 and an hour and a half of your time we will perform a detailed analysis of the kinetic and kinematic aspects of your swing, and provide a full pdf report with the analysis data.  Call the lab at (705) 474-3450 x. 4688 or email deanh@nipissingu.ca to book your appointment now.  All the details can be found here:  http://biomech.nipissingu.ca/golf-swing-analysis/

Nipissing University Undergraduate Conference 2016

Congratulations to Eric Bourdon, a fourth year student in the Bachelor of Physical and Health Education program for his prize winning presentation titled:  “Biomechanical changes during independent crank cycling”.  Eric performed the research presented as part of his fourth year project in the biomechanics lab under the guidance of his supervisor professor Dr. Dean Hay.

Governor General Visits Nipissing Biomechanics and Ergonomics Laboratory

The Nipissing Biomechanics and Ergonomics Laboratory was privileged to welcome His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada for a tour of the lab as part of his March 31, 2016 visit to North Bay.  A brief demonstration of the motion capture system was performed and Dr. Dean Hay discussed the research performed as well as the future goals of the BPHE department.
