Sport testing information

 

 

 

It is advisable you regularly medically sport to examine you. That is possible by means of a sport testing office. After this sport testing get you a report with all kinds of data.

What do all these numbers mean?
   

Blood pressure

 
  A high blood pressure can give for problems for the heart, the brain, the kidneys, the eyes and the blood barrels.
   
 
Blood pressure mm Hg
Normal    140/90 and lower
   Limit value    160/90
Too high    160/95 and higher



Fat percentage

 
  The skinfold-thickness measurement uses 4 standard place for stipulating the cross-section of the layer. Using the sum of these 4 skin folds the fat percentage can be stipulated. Table mentioned below indicates the ideal values.
   
 

Vetpercentage %

Age   Men   Woman
17-29   15%   25%
30-39    17,5%     27,5% 
 40 and older   20,0%   30%



Lung function: contents and forced expiratory volume in one second

 
  The lung function is measured by blowing slowly and rapidly in a breathalyser. Dependent on body length, age and gender there are standards for the total contents of the lungs and standards for volume in one second as a half-measure for the speed, which you can blow. The proportion lung content volume in one second is still sufficient if these 70% are.
   
 
Men   Contents (volume in 1 second) ml
    20-30 year 30-40 year
170cm   4800 (3800) 4400 (3200)
180cm   5600 (4500) 5200 (3800)
190cm   6400 (5200) 5900 (4400)


Woman

  Contents (volume in 1 second) ml
    20-30 year 30-40 year

170cm   4400 (3500) 4100 (2900)
180cm   4900 (3900) 4500 (3300)



Cardiovascular endurance test

 
  Using a bicycle ergometer the cardiovascular endurance is measured: the the maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) by kilogram body weight.

Haemoglobin quality

 
  The test measures the total amount of hemoglobin in the blood. Hemoglobin quality is a half-measure for oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cells. The normal value has been dependent on age and gender. Below mentioned table indicates healthy values.
   
 

Hemoglobin quality mmol/l

Men   8,6 -10,7

Woman

  7,4 - 9,4



Cholesterol quality (mmol/l)

 
  The cholesterol test measures the amount of cholesterol in the blood. The normal value is 6.5, but it is better have a value lower than 5. Cholesterol is one of the risk factors for heart disease.



Electrocardiograph (ECG)

 
  By means of an electrocardiograph the function and the size of the heart is obtained.



Urine

 
  The (morning) urine is checked with the dipstick on the presence of endosperm, sugar and blood cells.
