Our Mission

Body motions, or our physical movements, provide a number of significant cues to understand the mechanism of human activities and behaviors. Ida Lab. aims to contribute academic and surrounding societies by exploring the motor control function of human and the motor skill of athletes, on the basis of biomechanics theories and motion analysis techniques.

Our Approach

Ida Lab. addresses the questions on physical movement using traditional biomechanical methodologies and introducing the techniques from other fields like psychology and information sciences. Utilizing virtual reality is one of the typical examples. We are looking at physical motions and system functions on interdisciplinary knowledge.
