Diagnostics and Research Laboratory for Training Science at the Institute for Sports Science at the University of Rostock

The Institute of Sport Science at the University of Rostock is concerned with the short-, medium- and long-term effects of exercise-related interventions on performance. Specifically, the group is currently engaged in exercise and movement science research on neuromuscular and cardiorespiratory-metabolic phenomena in the context of acute stress, physical and mental fatigue, and training interventions. The spectrum of patients is broad. The team examines sick as well as healthy people, children, adults and older people. Athletes are also part of the patient group.

Focal points:

  • Analysis of training measures, rehabilitation processes and Performance structures
  • Analysis of the effects of fatigue, contraction-induced muscle injury and supplements on the neuromuscular system
  • Analysis of physical performance in the age group
  • Development of diagnostic measuring instruments and measuring methods
  • Evaluation of physical activity support measures
Recommended Products

The compact Vero cameras have sensor resolutions of either 1.3 or 2.2 megapixels. The camera has a variable zoom lens, which makes it especially suited for smaller capture volumes where it is especially important to have an optimum field of view. The Vero’s attractive price combined with its light weight and small size makes it a great choice for smaller labs and studios.


GRAIL (Gait Realtime Analysis Interactive Lab) takes classical gait analysis out of the laboratory and moves it to the virtual world. By combining a treadmill with a Virtual Reality screen, the patient can be immersed in different environments where real time biofeedback can be combined with specific tasks to enable training and analysis to take place simultaneously.

Myon aktos EMG

The EMG sensors are small, light-weight and have on-board storage to allow measurements in the field. Easy to attach and easy to charge, the long battery life, the high signal-to-noise ratio and the wireless range are other features that make the aktos the best EMG system on the market today.

Gait analysis in virtual space

The first and currently only GRAIL (Gait Real-time Analysis Interactive Lab) in Germany is located at the University of Rostock. The University of Rostock is working with this innovative technology in an interdisciplinary team. Extremely accurate real-time gait analysis in an interactive, virtual environment under conditions relevant to everyday life opens up new possibilities in research.
