VO2 Max Testing

VO2 Max Testing is an incremental aerobic fitness test which assesses your body’s ability to utilise oxygen. VO2 Max Testing is the gold standard test for Aerobic fitness assessment.

  • The test is assessing maximal oxygen uptake and your body’s ability to utilise oxygen. The results of this test can also allow the tailoring of a fitness program to improve the quality of your training.
  • The test starts with a 2-minute warm-up at a walking pace, with an incremental increase in either the treadmill speed or incline until exhaustion.
  • Recommended for athletes, aged between 18-60

Resting Metabolic Rate

Resting Metabolic Rate testing involves finding out the amount of energy that you expend at rest. This information can then be used in determining the required caloric intake for maintenance of

  • You will lie down in a relaxed state for 30-minutes, breathing into a mouthpiece.
  • Recommended for anyone who wants to understand how much energy their body uses or anyone interested in altering their body composition (gaining or losing weight).

Body Composition Assessment

The Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) scan is the gold standard procedure for body composition analysis. This will detail the quantities and proportions of total and segmental lean (muscle), fat and bone mass.

  • Body composition assessment involves an X-ray scan which takes 5-minutes to scan the entire body.
  • Recommended for everyone, especially athletes to understand fat and lean mass, people in rehabilitation to understand muscle atrophy or hypertrophy or people who need to monitor weight

Musculoskeletal Morphology

The pQCT provides a 3-dimensional assessment of bone material, structure and geometry of the bone to provide an accurate depiction of bone strength. It can be used to assess the bone at various sites prone to stress fracture as well as assess key sites of the muscle.

  • Musculoskeletal morphological assessment involves peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography (pQCT) assessing the key attributes of the muscle and bone of the lower-limbs. Scans typically take 20 minutes per leg.
  • Recommended for patients who are prone to stress fractures or patients in rehabilitation involving the lower-limbs (Knee injuries, ankle injuries, fractured bones).
