The Centre for Sports Medicine and Human Performance
The CSMHP focuses on integrative aspects of human physiology, biomechanics and sport and exercise psychology.
Researchers in the Centre seek to further an understanding of the regulation and adaptation of the cardiovascular, respiratory and neuromuscular systems to exercise and training, as well as the physiological, biomechanical and psychological limitations to human sport performance and exercise tolerance.
The Centre also offers a range of sport science assessment services, including maximal oxygen uptake and lactate threshold testing. A full range of respiratory assessments is also available, including screening for exercise-induced asthma.

In particular, it provides guidance on how to apply "functional" training techniques to the respiratory muscles of patients with a wide range of conditions. Evidence-based benefits for patients include, improvements in dyspnoea, exercise tolerance and quality of life. The techniques will therefore be of interest to the following:
