Our exercise physiology labs are accredited by The British Association of Sport and Exercise Science.
The British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) accredited laboratories hold sports-specific ergometry equipment (e.g. treadmill, cycle ergometer, rowing ergometer, kayak ergometer) to set exercise intensities across the entirety of an athlete’s physiological range. This allows our exercise physiologists to measure a variety of physiological responses in line with the body’s up-regulation during exercise.
Typical physiological measures include breath-by-breath gas analysis (Inc. portable gas analysis), cardiovascular measurement (e.g. heart rate, heart rate variability, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and electrocardiograph), haematological biomarkers and respiratory variables such as spirometery flow loops.
The main Human Performance Laboratory holds a similar range of ergometers, online gas analysers and blood biomarker analysers, alongside additional equipment such as the state of the art environmental chamber, with capacity to safely simulate altitude to equivalent oxygen levels of 12%, temperature ranges of 5 to 50°C and humidity levels of 30 to 90% (subject to temperature).
