- 921 S 8th Ave, Pocatello, ID 83201, United States
Idaho State University’s Department of Sports Science and Physical Education has opened a Human Performance Lab.
The lab is open to the community, athletes, faculty and staff at ISU for testing services ranging in price from $15 to $170. The laboratory is also open to students, professionals and the community for tours.
HUMAN PERFORMANCE LABORATORY
Sport and Exercise Performance Evaluation Program
Peak Aerobic Power (VO2peak)* $110
This evaluation will involve moving on a treadmill during respiratory and metabolic gas analysis and 12-lead ECG analysis of the heart. Results will provide information on your peak level of aerobic power, endurance capacity, anaerobic threshold, ventilatory response, and level of fitness.
Anaerobic Power and Capacity $30
This evaluation will involve performing a 20-second cycling challenge. Results will provide information on your peak power (PP), mean power/capacity to maintain a workload (MP), and the rate of decline in power/fatigue index (FI%) during the challenge.
Blood Lactate Analysis $20
This evaluation will involve collecting blood samples from a finger prick to determine lactate accumulation and clearance in a cycle ergometer test.
Body Composition $30
This evaluation will involve a 7-site skinfold assessment and/or a hydrostatic/underwater weighing technique. Results provide information on the amount of lean body mass (LBM), and % body fat.
Pulmonary Function $20
This evaluation will involve exhaling through a computerized spirometer. Results will provide information on your lung capacity, ventilatory efficiency, and potential COPD risk.
This evaluation will involve measuring range of motion (ROM) of several major joints using manual goniometric technique. Results will provide information on the degree of flexibility, detect bilateral asymmetry, and identify musculoskeletal restrictions.
Muscular Strength, Power and Endurance $15
This evaluation will involve performing physical challenges such as grip strength, crunches, reverse sit-ups/extensions, and pushups. Results will provide information on the level of muscular strength and endurance of the chest, shoulders, abs, lower and upper back, arms and hands/forearms.
Nutritional Analysis $40
This evaluation will involve obtaining your total nutritional intake over a 3-day period of time. Results will provide information on caloric intake, quality of the diet, nutritional excesses and deficiencies, and recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamins and minerals.
Resting Cardiac Function $30
This evaluation will involve checking the activity of the heart with a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) during supine, hyperventilation, and standing conditions. Results will provide information on conduction, identify cardiac abnormalities, and determine the health fitness status of the heart.
Performance Cycling Package $170
This package will include evaluation of anaerobic power and capacity, aerobic power and capacity and torque evaluation on a Velotron Cycle Ergometer.
*An additional $50.00 will be added should a physician be required for 1) individuals 40 years of age or older, 2) individuals that do not meet American College of Sports Medicine risk factor guidelines, or 3) adolescents under the age of 18 years with parental consent.
*An additional $30.00 will be added should any blood work be required.
