WOF for your health
You get a WOF for your car, why not get a WOF for your health?
This test is highly recommended for men over 45years old and women over 55years old as risk for cardiovascular disease starts to increase.
A Cardio-pulmonary test is the gold standard measure of fitness, but it can also assess the integrative response of the body to function together. This test can highlight possible disease or dysfunction in the following body systems; cardiac, respiratory, hematopoietic, musculoskeletal and neuropsychological systems.
Where resting tests and assessments can overlook disease, a cardio-pulmonary test can assess the body under stress and load of exercise, providing more valuable information for your Doctor about your health.
The test involves a maximal cycling test between 12-18minutes long (including warm up). Blood pressure, oxygen saturation, ECG, gas analysis, symptoms and rating of exertion are all monitiored throughout the test providing valuable information on health. Your results are discussed in depth and sent to your Doctor/specialist.
This test is also a great test to assess your aerobic fitness, and can help provide an effective training program to improve fitness.
