Abstract:
The Environmental and Occupational Physiology laboratory is part of the Paramedical department of the Haute école Paul-Henri Spaak. This group conducts research on the physiology in certain environments such as space, confined environments, high-altitude environments, remote areas, hyperbaric environments, etc.

The marine research of this group focuses on the study of the physiology during diving activities. Furthermore, the group is also interested in remote area medicine and wellness as well as preconditioning or training activities. This research field can be applied to seafarers or sailors, submariners, etc.
