Disciplines Physiology

Oracle conduct a variety of laboratory-based sports physiology assessments in a controlled environment to determine:

  • Anthropometric measurements
  • VO2 max
  • Running economy
  • Lactate thresholds

We use these physiology assessments to plan the athlete’s training zones.

This can be conducted on various modalities such as the SRM for those specialising in cycling or triathlon. For truly elite results measurements can also be taken in a wind-tunnel based lab.

Field based analysis can be conducted with Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) providing feedback in training on individual:

  • Training loads
  • Acceleration
  • Incidence and duration of sprints
  • Total distance covered
  • Exercise intensity during a game
