Measuring Cardiorespiratory Fitness
Firstbeat SPORTS software provides unique tools to monitor training intensity and cumulative training load in real time and in postanalysis through advanced individual and group reporting.
For monitoring intensity level, heart rate, color coded heart rate zones, %heart
rate max and % VO2max can be used.
EPOC (Excess post-exercise Oxygen Consumption, expressed in ml/kg) is a measure of training load. During the training EPOC accumulates as a function of time and intensity. The higher the intensity, more rapidly EPOC accumulates. EPOC is scaled into Training Effect from 1.0 to 5.0 illustrating the effects the training had on cardiorespiratory fitness.
Supporting Applied Research
Firstbeat Analysis Server for 24h Lifestyle Assessments, Firstbeat SCHOOLS and Firstbeat SPORTS are designed for applied research and field measurements in situations where accurate information on physiology is needed but the use of obtrusive methods is not desired. The method is easy to apply as only beat-by-beat (R-R) recording of heart rate is required.
Firstbeat software calculates information about several physiological parameters on a second by second basis, including respiration rate (breaths/min), oxygen consumption (VO2, ml/kg/min), energy expenditure (EE, kcal), excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC, ml/kg), and autonomic nervous system function. The method uses heart rate variability (HRV) indices and provides intelligent reporting and data analysis features for:
* Stress & Recovery Analysis
* Physiological Load Assessment
* Energy Expenditure Assessment
* Heart Rate Variability Studies
