The Exercise Science department at ESU supports excellent physiology and biomechanics laboratories where exercise testing and evaluation take place. Undergraduate and graduate students experience these laboratories and also have the opportunity to work in the new, state of the art University Recreation Center.
Most of the academic work and laboratory experiences at ESU are taught in the Human Performance and Biomechanics Laboratories.
Human Performance Laboratory
Students experience physiological equipment for testing athletes and patients alike within the Human Performance Laboratory. It is well equipped with treadmills, cycle ergometers, blood and gas analyzers, body composition instruments, electrocardiographs, spirometers, pulse oximeters and stress test systems.
Students experience equipment relating to the mechanics of human movement within the Biomechanics Laboratory. This laboratory contains infrared timing devices, video cameras, force-platforms, 2- and 3-dimensional motion analysis systems, and electromyography systems.
