Our Services - Swimming
Would you like to know your swimming capabilities and understand your performance limitation? Maybe you are not reaching your full potential, or maybe some small changes in your mental or physical status can make a big difference.
Our advanced testing laboratory includes an Elite Endless swim flume pool that allows testing and training under controlled conditions. Our lab is equipped with 16 electromyogram electrodes that monitor upper and lower limbs muscle functions, in-water and out-of-water cameras that assess swimming biomechanics and analyse movement symmetry and muscle fatigue. We also have a portable cardiopulmonary device for VO2 testing and lactate analyser for blood lactate measurements. These equipment allow to monitor your swimming performance under training session or during a whole-out exercise stress testing. In addition, we offer monitoring system for your out-door, open-pool activities and during your sleeping. This will provide a broad understanding of your performance capabilities as well as, limitation(s).
An out of pool movement assessment specifically for swimmers can also be performed on the swimmer in order to assess flexibility, strength and movement function. The results of which provide feedback on muscles that are weak, tight or movement patterns that may be dysfunctional so that corrective recommendations can be provided for improved performance and injury prevention.
The in-door lab testing requires 60 to 90 minutes for complete assessment. The outdoor monitoring as well as sleeping monitoring will be collected over a week (7 days and nights), after which, you will be asked to return to our lab for an appointment with our staff that will summarize your test results.
