With its ReMoCap Lab, the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences would like to actively help shape the future of rehabilitation. Virtual and mixed reality therapy will play a decisive role in this.

The swaying of the virtual rope bridge is simulated by the moving treadmill. The safety of the test person with a belt and the well controlled conditions during the gait analysis allow a precise measurement of the movement performance in a realistic and safe environment.
