Fields of Research:

Sports medicine is concerned with the influence of physical activity, training and sport as well as the lack of physical activity on healthy and sick people of every age to apply the findings to the fields of prevention, therapy and rehabilitation and also to the sportsperson himself. Moreover sports medicine analyses the significance of physical activity of every level for health and performance.

EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY IN AN ALTITUDE ENVIRONMENT OR UNDER HYPOXIC CONDITIONS
Behaviour of endurance capacity, strength and other physiological parameters (e. g. visual abilities) and their adaptation under normobaric and hypobaric hypoxic conditions.

SPORTS NUTRITION
Effects of different nutrition modifications on performance and regeneration; effects of nutrition, load and altitude exposition on acid-base status.

COMPETITIVE SPORTS, EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY
Analysis of specific demands in different sport games; optimisation of performance diagnostics and training control; endurance and strength training dependent on the menstrual cycle.

HEALTH AND OLD AGE
