Heat Chamber Acclimation

Heat Chamber Acclimation

Description

The Human Performance Laboratory heat chamber enables athletes to prepare for extreme environmental conditions through climatic simulation. Central to our facilities is a purpose built heat chamber that can control ambient temperature (10 to 40oC) and relative humidity (20 to 90%), thereby allowing us to provide heat acclimation strategies and pre-cooling manoeuvres to help athletes with their preparation for and competition in hot, humid conditions. When exercising in these conditions we can accurately monitor core and skin temperature and calculate sweat rate to help optimise hydration levels. Guidance on fluid replacement strategies can also be given specific to different sports or activities
