The sensors also monitor the testing hall area. The Centre also offers its own ski simulator with adjustable angle and speed, and “smart” fitness centre or a climbing wall. What is more, a diagnostic studio of physical culture - or your body technical control station - is the crucial part of the innovative Centre.

All aperson has to do is to go there, fill out a questionnaire which will provide their experts with basic information, and then go through a diagnostic package according to their recommendations, one’s needs and goals.

Popularization events

Our faculty regularly participates in popularization events, such as Science and Research Fair (held in mid-June) or the Researchers' Night (last Friday in September), offering the public fascinating insight into the research activities of the faculty. We also try to popularize science with accompanying programme during open days. Various diagnostic measurements, such as body composition measurement and footstep assessment, are especially popular with our visitors, who can get tested free of charge. Children are particularly interested in activities for people with disabilities, such riding a sports wheelchair or boccia (pétanque for the disabled).

The faculty is also regularly involved in the programme for students of the Children´s University.
