The HPL is dedicated to research related to strength and power for sport performance. It is equipped with sophisticated measurement devices such as a force plate, isokinetic dynamometer, velocity transducers, electromyography, and whole body vibration.
The purpose of the HPL is to investigate best practices for training while exploring the physiological mechanisms responsible for human neuromuscular adaptions. These include psychological, neural and hypertrophic changes that increase performance. Sports analyzed include volleyball, baseball, softball, surfing, water polo, soccer, rock climbing, weightlifting, track sprinters and distance runners.
Typical activities that are measured include both assisted and resisted vertical jump, single and multiple joint muscle strength, peak limb velocity, peak power, bat speed, sprint speed, kick speed and muscular fatigue.
