State-of-the-art equipment is available to sports scientists and physiotherapists
Separate from the Strength and Conditioning Gym, the physiotherapy and individual preparation zone provides the perfect space for smaller groups or any athletes undergoing rehab or medical treatment. Two private medical rooms sit either side of the central physiotherapy and stretching area including an outdoor balcony space.
Sport science is integral to St. George’s Park, incorporating leading technology to aid athlete performance including:
- Altitude and heat chamber (up to 5000m and 40 degrees celsius – a simulated high altitude environment allowing athletes, explorers and clients to train at different altitudes, temperatures and humidity to enhance athletic performance. The altitude chamber can be used to help improve recovery times, for injury rehabilitation and prepare for trips at high altitude
- Assessments include: OBLA, VO2 max, Force Plate Analysis, Functional Movement Screening, Blood Profiling, Body Composition and Isokinetic testing
- An anti-gravity treadmill, incorporating NASA technology, the Alter G treadmill optimises performance by customising body weight to aid rehabilitation after-injury or surgery
- Three 60 metre sprint lanes that use biomechanical analysis utilising the latest in video movement analysis and foot pressure sensor technology
