Biomechanics lab

The biomechanics lab is packed with advanced technical equipment used to optimise elite athlete performance.

We’re working hard to make our virtual tours accessible. Until it is fully accessible there is an accessible version of the scene below.

Charlotte: The large biomechanics lab offers a variety of sport science equipment. It is an open space designed to enable a range of practical activities to take place.

Force analysis measures three dimensional force vectors to report the direction with which force is applied to the ground. It is often used by elite sprint athletes to analyse their technique.

3D motion cameras are used to provide a visual representation of movement. They are used to work with sport professionals or for patients with chronic pain conditions.

The golf simulator provides data on the golf club swing and the ball, how fast and how far it is travelling.

The EMG system enables students to track muscular activation and monitor that muscles are working as they should do.
