CASES unite research relating to sport and exercise related to physiology, biomechanics, technology, nutrition, psychology and wellness.

Sport and exercise performance research assesses the impact of training, technique and performance-related issues with regard to the participation and achievements of athletes and exercisers alike.

Our research is diverse, including outputs in the following areas: equipment design; equine biomechanics; cycling performance; ergogenic aids to performance; performance in extreme environments, chronobiology, paediatric work physiology; match analysis, SAQ conditioning, integrated sport and exercise performance.
