Exercise Science facilities

The School also offers a purpose built set of Exercise Science Laboratories that was opened in 2011. The facilities are used extensively for both research and teaching. Included in the facility is a dedicated Exercise Physiology Laboratory, a Rehabilitation, Strength and Conditioning Laboratory and a Performance Laboratory used for biomechanics and motor control research and teaching. All three laboratories have been fitted with the latest equipment to ensure graduates are highly trained and will gain valuable hands-on experience using the latest equipment.

The facilities invite a wealth of research opportunities, not just in the sporting arena but in clinical settings and for industry as well. A focus of the School is injury prevention and performance at all levels of activity, enabling people to perform at an optimum level in their day-to-day lives as well as on the sporting field.

The facility also supports the partnership that was formed between Murdoch and the WA Cricket Association (WACA). Under the partnership Murdoch now has an international grade cricket pitch that is used by representative teams. These facilities will enhance collaboration in training, coaching, conditioning and research between the WACA and the University.
