Human Performance Laboratory (HPL) is a high-technology research facility, designed with multiple integrated spaces to facilitate interdisciplinary teaching, research, and engagement.

The Human Performance Laboratory (HPL) at Wichita State University is dedicated to providing students majoring in Exercise Science within the Department of Human Performance Studies with the opportunity to utilize the knowledge and skills obtained during the educational process.
