Our sports motion analysis services aid young athletes looking to enhance their sports performance and reduce their risk of injury. Our clinical gait analysis services provide tailored treatment plans to help improve mobility for children with cerebral palsy, neuromuscular diagnoses or other gait abnormalities.

Through the use of cutting-edge technology, the Sports Performance Training Lab at the Fight For Children Sports Medicine Center offers sports motion analysis and clinical gait analysis.

Highlights of our lab include:

  • Cutting-edge technology. With 14 high-speed 3D motion capture cameras and three 2D video cameras to capture movement from every angle, 10 force plates to assess stability and explosive power and 16 surface electromyography (EMG) sensors to record muscle activity, we can assess numerous aspects of a child’s movement and create detailed reports to inform our treatment and performance recommendations.
  • Convenient care at an advanced facility. For your convenience, our multi-disciplinary team of biomechanists, engineers, orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, sports physical therapists, athletic trainers and other members of the sports medicine team at the Fight For Children Sports Medicine Center work together to provide comprehensive motion and gait analysis services at our state-of-the-art facility in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland designed specifically for children, adolescents and young adults. Our expert team uses the biomechanical data collected in the Sports Performance Training Lab to help propel your child to their peak performance level.
  • Comprehensive care. The data collected during each visit to the Sports Performance Training Lab provides our team with detailed scientific data points about individual movement patterns, force generation and muscle activation during movement performance. Our team uses this detailed information to tailor our care and recommendations for each person that comes through our lab to help them succeed.
