Our Mission

Body motions, or our physical movements, provide significant clues toward understanding the mechanism of human activities and behaviors. Ida Lab. aims to contribute academic and surrounding societies by exploring human perceptual-motor performance from the perspective of biomechanics. Our interests are in expertise in motor skill, injury prevention, balance control function, and all about human motions.

Our Approach

Ida Lab. addresses the questions on physical activities using traditional biomechanical methodologies, especially kinetic and kinematic motion analysis, and introducing the techniques from other fields like psychology and information sciences. The postural and emotional responses in virtual environment, for example, are investigated in a current project. We are looking at the perceptual-motor system functions underlying human motions on interdisciplinary knowledge.
