Exercise Testing

In addition to our environmental physiology capacity, our laboratories comprise sophisticated exercise testing equipment. These laboratories have numerous dedicated motorised treadmills, adjustable electrically-braked cycle ergometers (for clinical and elite athlete populations) and a range of other ergometers that enable sport-specificity. We are able to carry out breath-by-breath and Douglas bag gas analysis, isokinetic dynamometry, blood gas analysis, blood lactate analysis, heart rate monitoring, 12 lead ECG, pulse-oximetry and we have a defibrillator on-site.
