Biodynamics and Human Performance Center

Welcome to Armstrong State University’s Biodynamics and Human Performance Center website.  On the website you will find information regarding facilities, current and past research projects, community partners, and current news and events.  Whether you are a prospective student, academic faculty member, member of the medical community or a commercial business/vendor who has an interest in studying and evaluating all aspects of human movement across the lifespan, we invite you to contact us and become involved with our Center. 

The 3200 sq foot Biodynamics and Human Performance Center resides in Ashmore Hall.  Functionally the Center is subdivided into three laboratories, Biomechanics Laboratory, Muscle Performance Laboratory and the Exercise Physiology Laboratory.  Three full-time Graduate Research Assistants are now employed by the Center to assist with the numerous teaching, research and service activities occurring in the Center each day.
