Human performance lab

The Human Performance laboratory provides a high quality experience-based learning environment for physiology related modules. Students work in small groups to get data on a range of physiological parameters at rest and during a variety of exercise protocols.


The lab is equipped with:

  • 6 Monark cycle ergometers
  • 2 treadmill with incline-decline gradient
  • a Medical technologies Lode cycle ergometer
  • Monarch Wingate ergometer
  • 2 Douglas bag apparatus systems with a Servomex gas analyser for expired gas analysis
  • Polar Heart rate monitors
  • hand grip dynamometers
  • ECG machine
  • peak flow devices for lung function analysis
  • blood pressure monitors
  • Nonin Onyx Digital Finger Pulse Oximeter

This provides equipment which allow us to perform Laboratory assessments
