Research equipment

It is dedicated to the study of human movement mechanics. The laboratory is equipped with advanced technology and computer programs for the analysis of movement kinematics and kinetics, as well as muscle activity. Measurements of muscle performance, analysis of muscle activity, biomechanics during various movement patterns, and movement kinematics are conducted in the laboratory. The results of these measurements, in addition to providing research insights, are useful for individualizing sports training and progress, identifying weaknesses, and monitoring injury rehabilitation. The following high-value research equipment is available:


The Physiology Laboratory is dedicated to the study of physiological responses and adaptations to exercise or different environments. It is equipped with high-tech equipment designed to measure and analyse various aspects of human physiology, in particular in relation to endurance, aerobic capacity and metabolism. Various training devices (treadmill, cycle trainer) allow tests to be carried out under sport-specific conditions.

Movement, inactivity and nutrition have a significant impact on certain health indicators. These indicators are reflected on the biochemical level before they are expressed macroscopically. By monitoring basic biochemical parameters, inflammation markers, hormones, and metabolic products, we significantly round off the findings established in the previously described laboratories. Biochemical laboratory infrastructure:


The goal of the microbiological laboratory is to provide opportunities for the identification, study and understanding of the role of microorganisms in environments important to humans. Within the framework of UP FVZ, the microbiology laboratory brings new knowledge that leads to the development and improvement of microbiological diagnostics, quality assurance in both health and food practice, development of applications and understanding of various mechanisms of action of microorganisms in the field of pathogenesis, resistance to antimicrobial agents, biofilm formation, etc. Equipment:


it includes both a broad-spectrum simulator that serves to optimize and develop various nursing procedures for various injuries of children or adults and a simulator resuscitation mannequin, which is key to studying and optimizing resuscitation procedures. The use of simulators is a relatively new approach to teaching that allows users to develop, improve, and apply knowledge and skills in real-world clinical situations. Higher value equipment:

  • Simulator Gaumard HAL 1000 
  • Simulator ALS-reanimation dummy
  • Simulator NIKKI za urjenje vseh postopkov s področja zdravstvene nege
  • QCPR reanimation dummies
