Physical Therapy Facilities
The University of Mount Union intends to launch a Doctor of Physical Therapy Program in the fall of 2016 pending the appropriate approvals. Follow the program’s progress through the accreditation process.
The Physical Therapy program will occupy 13,000 square feet in the newly built Gallaher Hall. The program will have two laboratory spaces with state-of-the-art equipment and one dedicated classroom. The program will also benefit from a separate Motion Analysis Laboratory equipped with a Vicon© Motion Capture System integrated ATMI Force Plates and a wireless Delsys® Trigno™ system. This piece of equipment will allow students to analyze movements through review of its components. Information about a movement’s speed, direction, force and muscular activity can be represented diagrammatically. This system allows for the original image of the movement to be super imposed on a represented skeletal system created from the image data.
