Sport and exercise laboratories
To be successful at sport – whether coaching, playing or treating – you need to understand the mechanics of movement. Our specialist staff and equipment will help you to determine indicators of sports performance, such as gait and joint strength, as well as allow you to work in a clinical setting, on medical conditions such as strokes.
How do you ensure athletes reach peak performance? It could be by working with them in one of our labourites dedicated to sport and exercise physiology.
As the name suggests, when using this laboratory and it’s equipment you’ll investigate respiratory physiology in athletes and diseased populations. You’ll work with our inspirational staff to become highly skilled in areas such as determining VO2 kinetics of athletes. You may also work as sport scientist to professional, national and international football clubs, such as Forest Green Rovers and Athletic Club Bilbao.
Using our environmental chamber, you could be screening athletes for exercise-induced asthma, or training them for the Olympics or even the desert marathon – Marathon des Sables.
