Collaboration with Cincinnati Children’s
Sports Medicine Human Performance Laboratory


The UCSIM | Center for Simulations & Virtual Environments Research partners with the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) Sports Medicine Human Performance Laboratory, and their TEAM VR staff (Training Enhancement and Analysis of Movement Virtual Reality), to develop virtual sporting arenas and fully immersive sports game-play scenarios to explore the use of virtual reality in identifying risk factors for injury prevention and developing targeted biomechanical injury prevention techniques.

The Sports Medicine Human Performance Laboratory opened a new state-of-the-art motion capture and virtual reality facility called SPORTS Center in 2015, using software developed by UCSIM for fully immersive virtual reality integration with custom Head-Mounted-Displays (HMDs) and Motion Analysis’ Cortex motion capture software.
