3D gait lab
Deakin's 3D GAIT lab offers students and members of the general public a three-dimensional assessment of their biomechanics as they walk or run.
This is the most progressive type of motion analysis available in the world and ours is the only lab in Australia that partners with the developers of 3D GAIT.
With access to the world's largest database of three-dimensional biomechanical walking and running data, our 3D GAIT equipment is an excellent practical learning facility for our students.
Clinical Exercise Learning Centre
How does exercise benefit people with health conditions?
This question is one that students of our Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology course hope to answer via their experience at our Clinical Exercise Learning Centre.
Working with accredited exercise physiologists, students apply their clinical knowledge to real clients. By meeting members of the local community, carrying out assessments and creating suitable exercise programs, they hope to address their health concerns in relation to chronic disease, injuries or disability.
Our School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences students don't just study in the lecture theatre: they benefit from practical, hands-on learning in our state-of-the-art teaching labs.
