Performance Labs

With years of experience in rehab at Lake Tahoe, our Performance Lab team consists of highly-skilled physical and occupational therapists — they put medical science behind your performance training or recovery from injury.

Barton Performance Lab & Analysis offers services that measure cardiovascular function with aerobic and anaerobic capacities, analyze your lower extremity and running mechanics, allow you to train on an anti-gravity treadmill at various weight bearing loads, and more. Laser therapy is also available to reduce pain and inflammation.

Our Services

  • Alter-G (anti-gravity treadmill) - for those seeking an opportunity to train at a higher level, looking for reduced impact training/ conditioning, or weight control and reduction while strengthening and improving coordination of muscles protecting surrounding joints.
  • Bike Fit - for cyclists and mountain bikers interested in assessing their posture, flexibility, range of motion, strength, and balance on their bike.

  • Resting Metabolic Rate - for those who wish to identify their unique target caloric zones in order to lose weight or support their caloric needs during training.
  • Running Video Analysis - assess running mechanics to help modify running gait or determine need for custom orthotics.
  • VO2 Max - a cardio fitness assessment measuring peak oxygen consumption, calories burned at different heart rates, aerobic and anaerobic threshold, as well as target intensity zones.
  • Wingate Test - appropriate for individuals who are interested in finding out about their anaerobic power.
