Facilities | Football Exchange

Facilities

The Football Exchange is located in the new Tom Reilly Building, at Byrom Street, in Liverpool city centre. The majority of the building contains state of the art laboratories for teaching, research and consultancy. Details of these facilities are below. Moreover, the staff of The Football Exchange designed the facility and have also designed similar for other organisations, such as professional football clubs. Please contact The Football Exchange to discuss how these facilities could be utilised by you or how the staff could assist you in creating facilities.

Physiology Laboratories

Contain state-of-the-art technology equipped for a diverse range of Physiology and Anthropometric assessments.

  • On-line metabolic carts
  • DXA
  • High resolution ultrasound proteomics
  • Normobaric hypoxic chambers
  • Isolation unit for sleep research
  • Field base testing suites
  • Respiratory Clinic
  • Temperature chambers for acclimation
  • An adjacent community-based gymnasium facilitates exercise training on-site.

Facilities are used for cardiac power assessment, musculoskeletal assessment, body composition analysis, echocardiography, blood flow and metabolic analysis.

Skill Acquisition Laboratories

For assessment of perceptual, cognitive and motor skills.

  • Applied Science Laboratories Mobile Eye Tracking    System
  • Applied Science Laboratories EYE-TRAC®5 eye tracking system
  • Qualysis motion capture and analysis of movement system and a life-size simulation video screen
  • Video editing suite

A second Behavioural Neuroscience laboratory includes:

  • Several high-speed eye tracking devices (ChronosVision, IRIS)
  • High-resolution projection systems (Barco Graphics 908)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (dual-pulse Magstim)
  • Visual stimulus generators (ViSaGe, COGENT)

Match Analysis Suite

  • Twenty stations containing up-to-date Apple iMac computers with Sportscode and Gamebreaker software
  • Video editing software

The laboratory contains the only CAREN system (MOTEK, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) in the United Kingdom, which gives control over proprioception, vision and vestibular system, and registers the person’s responses by recording quantitative measures of movement.

Biomechanics

Equipment also includes an 8 camera 240 Hz ProReflex system which is ceiling mounted together with two floor mounted Kistler force platforms, a mobile 6 camera 1000 Hz ProReflex system, equipment for lightweight acceleromerty (Entran), in-sole pressure measurement (RS scan), videography, isometric
and isokinetic muscle function, EMG (telemetry, umbilical and hardwired systems), plus 75m runway
with force platforms
