Lab Equipment and Facilities

In the Fall of 2006 we opened our human physiology laboratory which, combined with our biomechanics, exercise and environmental physiology, neuromuscular, and anatomy labs, hosts a variety of research and teaching equipment including:
  • OxyconPro cardiopulmonary system
  • Sable cardiopulmonary system
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulator
  • High flow pneuatach flow head transducer (spirometry)
  • Go 2 altitude (hypoxic generator)
  • Portable metabolic system
  • Biopac and CED data acquisition (electromyography, force, and goniometry)
  • Electrical muscle stimulator
  • Inversion (tilt) chair apparatus
  • Temperature controlled immersion tank (-3.0 – 40.0°C)
  • Lumbar motion monitor
  • Foot pressure measuring system
  • Platform motion monitoring
  • Axial accelerometers and load cells
  • Treadmill ergometer (high speed)
  • Cycle ergometer
  • Kinematic measurement system
  • 2/6 DOF motion simulators (Centre for Marine Simulation)
  • Range of motion testing system (lower and upper body)
  • Modular leg extension
  • Fitness testing and evaluation equipment
