“We are using the 1080 equipment to better understand the human response to ergogenic aids, performance enhancing protocols/supplements, and training.

At present the main application for our Sprint 1080 is with the varsity and elite athletes who train with the University and Speed River Track and field clubs, wherein we are seeking to understand resisted sprint training for acceleration, as well as the effect of using ischemic pre-conditioning prior to exercise. We have adapted our Quantum to combine it with commercially available single-joint exercise machines, and have thus validated its use as a versatile research dynamometer.”
