HPR Lab Madrid

Human Performance Research Lab (HPRLab)

A state-of-the-art space for learning and research.

The HPRLab is part of the modern facilities of the Faculty of Physical Activity, Sport and Physiotherapy Sciences at Universidad Europea de Madrid, and has been designed as a state-of-the-art space for cross-disciplinary learning about the benefits and uses of physical exercise in people's health and performance.

The Human Performance Research Lab is the perfect link between the University world and the sports industry world and has become the ideal environment for collaboration between professors, students and companies.

It has the best sports facilities at Universidad Europea, with a great team of researchers and the latest technologies. All this with the aim of advancing in the knowledge of the psycho-physiological limits of the human being and applying this knowledge to the overall improvement of people's health.

Both the HPRLab and the other facilities and resources of the Faculty of Physical Activity, Sport and Physiotherapy Sciences at Universidad Europea are available to professors and students in the fields of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences, Physiotherapy, Medicine and other qualifications in the Health Sciences fields throughout the various training periods, both at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The Human Performance Research Lab is a multidisciplinary environment in which laboratories for Sports Training and Motricity, Exercise Physiology, Biomedicine and Genetics, Biomechanics, Sports Vision, and Competition Analysis coexist.

These facilities have a multitude of technological learning systems, among which the following stand out:

  • State-of-the-art eight-camera automatic three-dimensional motion capture system that can be used both indoors and outdoors.
  • Sixteen-channel DELSYS wireless electromyography system that measures muscle activity.
  • Tensiomyography system, which measures muscle contraction in a non-invasive manner.
  • Sport tracking system, which allows subjects to be monitored both indoors and outdoors.
  • Treadmill, Wattbike Pro cycle ergometers and mechanical and electromagnetic brake arm ergometers, for stress tests for elite athletes and the general population.
  • Lactate analyser, for evaluation of the response and metabolic adaptation to effort.
  • DEXA, for body composition analysis
  • Electroencephalography helmet for evaluation of cortical activation in different brain regions to understand the psychophysiological mechanisms of fatigue processes in sport.
  • State-of-the-art sports training equipment from Life Fitness.
