Laboratory of Human Motricity Studies - LEMOH (FFTO-ICS/UFPA)
The LEMOH is coordinated by the prof. Bianca Callegari and has equipment that enables evaluations relevant to human movement and the biomechanics of balance, posture and gait, such as: pressure platform (baropodometry); force platform; transducers synchronized with electromyography: load cell dynamometry, pressure algometer with dolorimeter, digital goniometer and footswitch; simi motion kinemetry system, with 4 cameras. LEMOH serves both lines of research and recently received R$ 69,000.00 for investments through the LABRINFA public notice (PROEG Edition 01/2017 – PGRAD/LABRINFA).
Laboratory of Neurodegeneration and Infection - LNI
We have the support of Laboratory of Neurodegeneration and Infection (LNI) that it’s installed at João Barros Barreto University Hospital, where are developed clinical studies and animal models are carried out investigating rehabilitation strategies and physical and cognitive stimulation in the different life cycles, in pathologies conditions or age-related cognitive decline. The laboratory has a Cambridge Automated Neuropsychological Assessment System (CANTAB); materials for evaluation and physical training, large vivarium NB II; ANY MAZE system for semi-automated analysis of animal behavior; two “wet” laboratories for experiments and reactions; equipment for histological and cell biology analysis; semi-automated microscopy for quantitative analysis by three-dimensional morphometry and stereology. Participating in the LNI are Prof. Dr. Natali Valim; Prof. Dr. João Bento and Prof. João Simão.
Laboratory of Adapted Physical Activity - LAFA
The LAFA is coordinated by professor Dr. Anselmo de Athayde Costa e Silva. In the laboratory, there is a structure for evaluation and exercise in people with disability as well as for analysis of motor performance using inertial sensors.
Laboratory of Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Cardiac, Oncological and Respiratory Dysfunctions - LACOR
The LACOR, coordinated by professor Dr. Laura Neves, is located at the João Barros Barreto University Hospital and is linked to the Faculty of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy – UFPA. It was created with the aim of enabling Research and Extension Projects with a focus on evaluation and rehabilitation in cardiorespiratory and oncological disorders.
LACOR comprises the Research and Studies Groups on Cardiovascular and Respiratory Evaluation and Rehabilitation (GARDEC), in addition to promoting the provision of services to the community and functioning as a practical laboratory for the graduation classes of the Physiotherapy course.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Outpatient Clinic
The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Outpatient Clinic, coordinated by the professor Dr. Laura Neves, is located at University Hospital João Barros Barreto and consists of a partnership with the physiotherapy service between the Hospital and the Faculty of Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy, in which the Pulmonary Rehabilitation service was structured. In the space, there are equipment for evaluation and physical training of patients with cardiopulmonary pathologies and are developed research, extension and supervised internship projects of physiotherapy course.
Laboratory of Physiology Applied to Combat Sport - LAFEC
The LAFEC works in the Sports Complex of Campus Castanhal and is under the coordination of Prof. Victor Coswig, it was structure in 2017 through the LABRINFA public notice (approved value R$ 49,900.00). LAFEC enables support for projects related to both lines of research present in the proposal and is equipped with: a contact mat, photocells, tapes for monitoring cardiovascular variables, digital scale, sound equipment (often used for aerobic fitness tests), tablet and portable lactometer.
Laboratory of Morphophysiology and Human Performance - LMDH
The LMDH is located on the Guamá Campus and was created in 2017 through PROEG/UFPA 01/2017 notice (approved value R$ 47,839.00) under the coordination of professor João Bento Torres Neto. It’s equipped with heart rate monitors with GPS for recording heart rate variability, a workstation for performing automated neuropsychological tests (computers and touchscreens tablets), a device for measuring serum lactate, cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose, adipometers, cycle ergometers for lower limbs and upper (2 unites), metabolic gas analyzer and ventilatory measurements, in addition to other equipment for physical and anthropometric evaluation.
