The HPSP Lab has a strong and ongoing collaborative research relationship with the Laboratory for Sport Psychology & Performance Excellence (LSPPE). Our Labs have collaborated on a number of past and current research projects. This ongoing collaboration resembles the overall Integrated Human Performance research objective of both of our Labs.
The HPSP Lab utilizes Noraxon electromyography (EMG) equipment and software to examine muscle activation patterns, electromechanical delay, and force production for various research projects.
The HPSP Lab utilizes Zephyr Bioharness monitors, straps, and software to examine various physiological measures for a multitude of research projects. This ongoing relationship has been instrumental in the HPSP Lab’s efforts to investigate heart rate variability (HRV) among a wide range of populations.
The HPSP Lab utilizes exercise equipment from Black Mountain Products to facilitate the corrective exercise interventions employed among firefighter populations.
The HPSP Lab is currently collaborating with the developers of the Ultimate Sandbag Core Fitness System to examine the potential differences in physiological measures of sandbag training compared to other traditional training mechanisms. We will be specifically examining differences in heart rate, breating rate, skin temperature, and muscle activation patterns.
