Learn, innovate, and improve teaching through the advanced technology of the BiPed Lab.
At the University of North Dakota BiPed Laboratory, we train students for their future by utilizing the following techniques:
- learning through practice with state-of-the-art technology and research strategies
- innovation through collaboration by binding distributed disciplines through common links, and
- innovation through experimentation by attempting novel methods, refining attempts, and gaining crucial knowhow from failure.
At UND's BiPed Laboratory, we train students for the future.
Classes Using the Lab this Semester
- Kinesiology 332 Biomechanics
- Kinesiology 530 Sport Biomechanics
- Kinesiology 555 Motion Capture
- Physical Therapy 591 Research in Physical Therapy
