Laboratory of functional diagnostics and rehabilitation technologies

The Laboratory of functional diagnostics and rehabilitation technologies has an 18-year history of conducting research at the university. In 2002, due to the need in scientific and methodological support of the University’s national teams and the awareness of the importance of improving the health of student-athletes, the creation of the Center for non-drug health Technologies was initiated, which was later transformed into a Scientific and Practical Center for non-drug health technologies, and then into an Inter-departmental educational and research laboratory (IDERL). In 2019, IDERL became a part of the Scientific, Methodical and Innovative Activities Center and got a new name of the Scientific and Methodical Laboratory of functional diagnostics and rehabilitation technologies.

The laboratory has unique research capabilities and actively interacts with sports teams, children’s and youth sports schools, Olympic reserve schools, sports federations, educational institutions and other organizations. The main activity is the scientific justification, development, study of the effectiveness and implementation of methods of hardware physiotherapy for accelerating the recovery of performance and preserve the health of athletes.

In 2019-2020, the Laboratory carried out the project «To develop a method for improving the physical qualities, psychological and vegetative status of children with hearing disabilities at the stage of preliminary training in track and field athletics on the basis of audio-visual effects» (scientific supervisor – D. K. Zubovsky). The aim of the study was to involve children with hearing disabilities in athletics at the stage of preliminary sports training by improving their physical qualities by correcting their psychological and vegetative status using audio-visual training using the domestic AVS-D device.
