Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) is a Spanish public university in the Mediterranean region. In collaboration with MemTrain, the Sport Reserch Center from UMH takes part to contribute with our scientific knowledge about exercise and its impact in older people.

In the Sport Research Center, exercise and sport is studied from different perspectives, with a physiological, biomechanical, behavioral and motor control point of view.

Nowadays, two studies are in development in relation with older people. Core stability and balance is studied in the biomechanical laboratory, and cognitive and psychological impact of exercise is studied by the behavioral group.
