Performance test - physical fitness
Whether on the stationary bike or treadmill: At the Bad Hofgastein cure and rehabilitation center, you benefit from state-of-the-art testing procedures and performance diagnostics, allowing you to take appropriate steps towards your personal good health and well-being.
The performance diagnosis is the result of so-called ergometric testing on a bicycle or treadmill in the laboratory, with the aid of bio-mechanical testing equipment, or also in a field test. Depending on the testing procedure used, while the body is put under stress, the cardiovascular system, metabolism as well as the respiratory system are closely monitored.

Measuring lactate (by drawing blood from the earlobe) makes it possible to draw conclusions about the state of metabolism in muscle. This allows us to accurately assess the anaerobic threshold and heart frequencies in the various training ranges. By means of a combination of networked computers and testing equipment, tests can be conducted to measure quickness, agility, reaction time and strength.
Sports medicine opportunities in Austria: methods for weight and body analysis
Bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) tells us a lot about a person's body composition (fat, muscle, water). Especially in the field of weight management, this type of analysis is important. For sportsmen and athletes, too, this type of measurement is of great importance in order to counteract appropriately any potential drop-off in performance.
Performance diagnostics are available to hobby, recreational and competitive athletes alike. The training is tailored to individual needs with respect to the amount of stress placed on the subject and the duration. The modern lab at Kurzentrum Bad Hofgastein, along with close ties to Austria's leading laboratory physicians, also makes it possible to conduct special blood tests (such as hormone analysis, amino-acid status, etc.)
