The University of Waikato Sports Science lab provides specialist measurement services to athletes such as cyclists, triathletes, rowers, kayakers and runners. Typically, athletes visit the clinic wishing to gain an insight into their current physiological status using measures of VO2max, blood lactate response, or a combination of both.
The University of Waikato has two sport science labs that provide these services:
- Home of Cycling Avantidrome, Cambridge and;
- Adams Centre for High Performance, Mount Maunganui. Individual and team sport athletes preparing for competition at altitude and/or hotter environments will benefit from use of the environmental chamber (only available at the Adams Centre) to help acclimation and improve key physiology markers.
