Exercise Physiology Teaching Laboratory
Our teaching lab is where students learn the fundamental practical skills of exercise physiology.
Students measure and observe variables such as oxygen uptake, blood lactate and glucose, heart rate, blood pressure, ventilation and core body temperature at rest and during exercise.
Exercise Physiology Research Laboratory
This facility features a wide range of high-spec equipment including automated spectrophotometers, micro-plate readers, a haematology analyser, blood lactate and glucose analysers, a blood gas/electrolyte analyser, and a treadmill capable of speeds up to 40km/h with a 30% incline.
This equipment is used with recovering patients, 'normal' participants and elite athletes. Students also use the lab to take part and assist in research projects being carried out by our expert staff.
