Physiology lab

Our three physiology laboratories are designed to assess how the human body responds and adapts to sport and exercise. They are fully equipped with a wide range of facilities to allow individuals to be assessed using the most appropriate sport-specific methods. The equipment available for testing includes: 

  • Medgraphics CPX/D and Cosmed K4b2 - on-line gas analysis systems enabling data to be collected both in the laboratory and out in the field
  • YSI 1500 Sport for blood lactate analysis both in the laboratory and out in the field
  • HP Cosmos Saturn - oversized treadmill capable of reaching a speed of 40km per hour and a gradient of 25 per cent, designed to be used by wheelchair athletes or cyclists
  • Additionally, a smaller 'HP Cosmos Pulsar' is also available for running
  • SRM power cranks and an electronically braked cycle ergometer for the testing of cyclists
  • Concept 2b rowing ergometer and DYNO are also available for sport specific testing
