HEPRU conducts comprehensive research dedicated to understanding how humans perform in adverse environments. Using the world's only whole-body direct calorimeter (a device used to precisely measure the heat emitted by the human body), HEPRU has the unique ability to examine the effects of changing environments on human physiological responses.
HEPRU is home to the world's only human whole-body calorimeter. We also have several room-sized climate controlled chambers fitted with state of the art exercise and medical assessment equipment. See more about our facilities by clicking the link below.
