Sport Sciences Lab

This highly technically advanced laboratory are primarily used for teaching, research and testing in the area of sports and exercise science. The lab is about 400 square metres in size and is affiliated with the sports medicine unit and Umeå School of Sport Sciences.

The sports science laboratory increases the possibility to test and analyse the things that are of utmost interest for athletes, such as conditioning, strength and speed.

In the sports science laboratory, it will be possible to conduct sophisticated analysis of blood, and muscle and heart function, both at rest and during physical work. Some tests may also be performed outside the laboratory, above all about oxygen uptake and energy in running, skiing and cycling.

The lab is located in the premises of IKSU Sport Centre, the largest fitness centre in northern Europe.
