Motion and Performance Centre in BBC2 documentary

The Motion and Performance Centre features in a documentary on BBC2 this Wednesday 14th December. “The Big Life Fix” hosted by Simon Reeve follows the build of a special bicycle for teenager Oscar Johnson who was born with no hands or feet. The 3d motion capture system and special bike fitting rig in the Centre were used to study Oscar’s pedalling biomechanics providing useful direction for the bicycle design. Technicians Joe Bevins and Mark Corbett were assisted by placement student James Purtell.
