Sports research

We're focused on a sporting future

Griffith teams our world-leading sports scientists with cutting-edge facilities to develop research and technologies that not only benefit sportspeople but the general public. Our research covers all sides of sport, from performance to participation and results to recovery.

Research projects

Human and sport technologies

Griffith School of Engineering conducts research into human and sport technologies, multidisciplinary expertise to develop portable sensors that monitor human movement and sports performance. This research also spawned Sports and Biomedical Engineering Laboratories (SABEL)—an enterprise and research group that develops sports and wearable technologies. We also reach into the wider local and international community as a member of the Queensland Sports Technology Cluster, the Australian Sports Technologies Network and the International Sports Engineering Association.

Menzies Health Institute Queensland
