the human mechanics lab
THE HUMAN MECHANICS LAB is a fitness assessment service that brings to you a distinctive sports lab experience.
The lab experience service is designed to develop insight into one’s own physical fitness and ability; and to gain a better understanding of human health, nutrition and performance. By understanding how humans perform, sport scientists can design, monitor and evaluate training programmes to help individuals and athletes reach their maximum potential.
Assessments are not only intended to measure baseline performance, but also set targets to improve performance, and as a tool to continually track performance. Assessments allow individuals and athletes to follow a scientific route to improve performance and to ultimately, be the best version of themselves.
The lab experience is a 4-step process comprising of data collection, fitness assessments, analysis and feedback.
THE PROCESS FOLLOWED:
The first step is the collection of personal and lifestyle information via a questionnaire or a discussion session.
Fitness Testing Session
A fitness testing session will be scheduled at a location near you and the testing protocol will be carried out under the supervision of a sports scientist.
A sport science expert will analyze the test results in context of the subjective information and generate systematic guidance to improve performance.
Feedback will be provided in the form of a report or a feedback session with the expert.
HUMANICS ENDURE is a cardiovascular fitness assessment, a modified, gamified shuttle run assessment that can be run for individuals or for large groups. This is the most vital fitness assessment of all – It is an extremely valuable tool for athletes, sports teams, healthy kids and adults to benchmark performance.
A worthwhile application of this assessment is to scan through large groups of individuals such as in schools or sports training academies, to identify fitness talent for sports. ENDURE is also a suitable indicator for heart health and overall fitness for healthy kids and adults and thus is extremely useful for school and corporate fitness assessment.
ENDURE is a single cardiovascular performance assessment that is the heart of all fitness assessment protocols.
A basic protocol of 3 assessments to test body composition and heart-health and cardiovascular performance.
HUMAN MECHANICS Basic
A protocol of 5 fitness assessments to test “healthy-fitness”. This assessment protocol is useful for testing large groups of adult or youth populations on basic healthy-fitness parameters such as Body Composition, Cardiovascular Endurance, Strength, Flexibility and Core stability.
HUMAN MECHANICS +
A customized protocol of up-to 11 fitness assessments to test “healthy-fitness”.
This assessment protocol includes the basic 5 assessments from HUMAN MECHANICS, with an additional selection of up-to 6 Add-On Assessments. These Add-On-Assessments can be selected from a wide range of assessments from the HUMANICS test database. Other tests include – Nutrition Analysis, Body Balance, Blood Pressure, Blood Glucose Check, Activity Analysis, Spine Health, Posture Analysis, Mind Health and Wellbeing, Flexibility etc.
This protocol is recommended for individuals and smaller groups of people as assessments and feedback are more in-depth and personalized.
AHTLETE MECHANICS Basic
A protocol of 5 fitness assessments to test basic physical fitness for sports.
Athlete mechanics assessment protocols are created for athletes along the entire spectrum of athletes from recreational athletes to professional athletes. This assessment protocol is useful for testing large groups of athletes or sports teams on essential fitness parameters for sports performance such as Cardiovascular Endurance, Strength, Power, Speed and Agility.
AHTLETE MECHANICS +
A protocol of up-to 11 fitness assessments to gain in depth insight into sports related fitness. This assessment protocol includes the basic 5 assessments from ATHLETE MECHANICS, with an additional selection of up-to 6 “Add-On Assessments” These Add-On-Assessments can be selected from a wide range of assessments from the HUMANICS test database. Other tests include – Fatigue Index, Skill-Agility, Cardiovascular Assessment for Intermittent Sports, Reaction Time, Hand-Eye-Coordination, Anthropometry, Sports Psychology etc.
ATHLETE MECHANICS Sport
Select from a range of protocols for specific sports:
A protocol of 9 fitness assessments to test physical fitness for cricket.
A protocol of 9 fitness assessments to test physical fitness for Basketball.
A protocol of 9 fitness assessments to test physical fitness for Football.
ELITE MECHANICS Program
A customized protocol of up-to 21 scientific fitness assessments for the elite individual/athlete/team aimed at tracking and improving performance.
This program involves 4 fitness assessment sessions (4 complete testing protocols) + 8 consultation sessions each year.
This service is created for:
- individuals and fitness enthusiasts required to ensure that their body is functioning at optimal capacity.
- athletes and sports teams looking to take their performance to the next level with the science of sport.
