The Human Performance Centre is equipped with modern technology

We enable world class research in the fields of sport, health, physical activity and exercise science.

The Human Performance Centre has access to world-class equipment and methodologies:

  • Hypoxic and environmental chambers
  • Qualisys 8-camera 3D-motion analysis system and 5 Kistler platforms
  • 3D accelerometry
  • Footscan pressure distribution platform
  • Breath-by-breath gas analysis systems
  • Blood pressure, cardiac output and heart rate monitors
  • Surface electromyography
  • Peripheral muscle and nerve- and transcranial brain-stimulation
  • Eye-tracker
  • Doppler Ultrasound and Flow-Mediated Dilation
  • Systems for Blood lactate; cholesterol; lipid profile; haemoglobin and haematocrit measurements
  • Near-Infrared Spectroscopy
  • Laser Doppler flowmetry and Imaging
  • Digital bioimpedance scales
  • Flow cytometry

These allow for the measurement of:

  • movement kinetics and 3D kinematics
  • strength, power, flexibility and balance
  • speed, agility and quickness
  • respiratory function (oxygen uptake and metabolism)
  • peripheral and central cardiovascular function
  • neuromuscular function and coordination
  • central and peripheral fatigability
  • visual perception and action
  • brain and muscle oxygenation
  • blood and muscle biochemistry
  • body composition and metabolism
  • inflammatory status
  • cognitive performance
  • team play analysis
