As a result of the recent $49 million renovation, the Exercise Science program now enjoys a state-of-the-art human performance laboratory in which the faculty conduct research and teach. Listed below is a summary of our laboratory resources.
ParvoMedics Metabolic cart along with a Trackmaster Treadmill.
Biomechanical analysis equipment, including motion analysis software, high-speed cameras, and two force plates.
Biochemical analysis equipment, including a flow cytometer, multiple centrifuges, a microplate reader, an ultra-low freezer and refrigerator for blood sample storage, a YSI lactate analyzer, and an Analox GM-7 blood analyzer.
Clinical exercise physiology equipment, including a Quinton Q 55 treadmill/exercise ECG and a Schiller resting ECG machine.
The lab also contains three treadmills (in addition to the exercise ECG treadmill), seven Monark cycles, Wingate power analysis software, a multi-stack resistance training module, a Vacumed Mini-Vista CPX metabolic analysis system, and a wall-mounted monitor on which we project data to aid in teaching.
