The Athlete Research Lab

We at Elite believe in offering the best for our patients. Not being content with the ‘status quo’. In 2017 we established The Athlete Research Lab (or ‘The Lab’) with the sole mandate of seeking to drive innovation in health and performance research. The state-of-the-art facility is the culmination of over 20 years’ experience in high-performance team environments, uncompromising dedication to research and a desire to provide athletes with the opportunity to always be their best, no matter the circumstances. Directed by Tim McGrath (PhD) and aligned with particular expertise in lower limb research, the cornerstone of the Lab is the recently installed 3D Motion Capture System (utilizing high speed video), which captures movement in intricate detail at 330fps, and full high definition 1080p.
