Endurance performance diagnostics and training consultation

Performance diagnostics combined with an extensive sports medical examination is a key com-ponent of many sports disciplines. Besides the general determination of the current state of health and the associated sports capability, the goal of such sports medical performance diag-nostics is the exact specification of the individual's physical capacity. And it is not only the high-performance athletes who benefit from such a sports medical performance examination in order to reach their personal performance peak, but also the ambitious amateur athletes and sports beginners who can thus exercise at their appropriate level and adequate speed without having to fear implications from unnecessary overstraining.

Our performance diagnostics focus on ergospirometry and lactate kinetics analysis.

Equipment

Depending on the exercise activities you are accustomed to, in the IPS you can choose be-tween different types of ergometers to test your cardiopulmonary endurance capacity. You can either use a customary medical cycle ergometer (ergoline) to perform for a stress ECG or you try our Cyclus II cycle ergometer. This device allows using your own bicycle frame (MTB or rac-ing bike frame) so that you can make the test targeted optimally to your sport under familiar seat arrangement conditions.
In addition, our equipment comprises an extra-broad, slat-belt treadmill (Woodway) at ground level and a rowing ergometer.

For the respiratory gas analysis within our ergospirometry procedure we have a mobile and a stationary measuring unit. The blood gas analysis and the lactate determination are carried out simultaneously with the exercise test, optionally using an ABL 700 of Radiometer/Copenhagen or a Biosen C-Line of EKF Diagnostic. Immediately upon completion of the test, the results are available for evaluation .

Basic performance test (lactate kinetics analysis, training consulta-tion)

This test particularly addresses amateur athletes with an ambition for leisure and popular sports, who are primarily interested in a statement concerning their physical capacity, cardiovascular system and energy metabolism as well as their current fitness level.

What you can expect:

  • Exercise test (either exercising on a cycle ergometer or running on a treadmill) according to a standardised step protocol with regular recording of the heart rate and determination of the lactate concentration
  • Evaluation and lactate kinetics analysis with threshold determination and specification of the ideal personal training range
  • Comprehensive consultation including preparation of a training scheme under considera-tion of your personal training objectives

Performance test for athletes (ergospirometry, lactate kinetics, train-ing consultation)

This test particularly addresses athletes with an ambition for leisure and popular sports, who are interested in a differentiated statement on their physical capacity (concerning the cardiovascular system, the energy metabolism and, additionally to the basic performance check, the respiratory system) as well as on their current fitness level.

What you can expect:

  • Exercise test including stress ECG (either exercising on a cycle ergometer or running on a treadmill) according to a standardised step protocol with regular recording of the heart rate and determination of the lactate concentration
  • Continuous measurement of the respiratory gases under stress (oxygen intake and carbon dioxide exhalation) and determination of the peak oxygen intake (VO2 peak)
  • Evaluation and lactate kinetics analysis with threshold determination and specification of the ideal personal training range
  • Comprehensive consultation including preparation of a training scheme under considera-tion of your personal training objectives

Price 169€
