Human Performance Lab

Get Hands-On Experience with Human Performance Equipment

The Human Performance Laboratory is designed to enhance student learning, promote research, and serve the needs of students, faculty, and athletes of all levels.

Learn to assess a number of physiological parameters including maximal oxygen uptake, body composition, anaerobic capacity, ECGs, and more. You’ll be able to actively test people using lab equipment and get hands-on research experience.


Research Capabilities

  • Altitude Simulation (up to 24,000 feet)
  • Anaerobic Capacity Testing
  • Balance Testing
  • Blood Collection (finger stick)
  • Body Composition Assessment (Bodpod, skinfold)
  • Cardiopulmonary/ECG Exercise Testing
  • EMG Assessment (8 channel)
  • Endurance Performance Testing
  • Resting Energy Expenditure
  • Strength Testing (isokinetic, isometric and isotonic)
  • Vibration Training
