Technical Support for Research FGB (TO3)

Direct route to Lab Servant for your reservation
Last updated on 15 March 2024
The Faculty of Behavioral and Movement Sciences is actively supported in its research and (partly) teaching by highly advanced laboratories and research equipment, and a group of specialized technicians and consultants.

The technicians of Technical Support for Research FGB (TO3) develop and manage the (high-quality) equipment, software and research setups that FGB researchers can use. The development of these services is best done at an early stage of the research planning. The TO3 technicians also produce unique components with their advanced equipment that facilitate research and they are singularly qualified to advise you on the purchase and use of the best hardware and software for your research. 

Our staff has years of experience and knowledge in the field of research within psychology, educational sciences and movement sciences.

The research labs and equipment are of top-tier quality and, in some cases, not found at any other research institution in The Netherlands. Some examples of the specialized labs and equipment developed by our technicians include:

  • one of the few climate chambers with extreme temperature settings;
  • a 4-meter wide treadmill for research with cyclists and wheelchair-bound athletes
  • an atmospherically decorated observation room where researchers can observe and record research subjects’ activities without being seen.

Technical Support for Research is also the right place to come to borrow handheld equipment and hardware including:

  • Breath analysis
  • Ambulant Monitoring
  • System (AMS)
  • iPads
  • Laptops
  • Eye registration equipment
  • Optotrak
  • Tablets
  • Video camera’s
  • High Speed camera's

The total overview of our equipment can be found in our reservation system Lab Servant.
