Endurance diagnostics, spiroergometry (VO2max test)

Spiroergometry offers athletes the gold standard in performance diagnostics. The extensive diagnostic tests are used to determine the performance and loading capacity of the athlete’s heart and lungs, as well as their respiratory threshold – maximum oxygen uptake. It accurately determines the individual thresholds for endurance training.

The athlete is monitored while exercising on a bicycle or treadmill ergometer until they have reached their individual maximum level. The test person’s respiratory gases are analyzed through a mask (breath analysis). The maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max/ VO2peak) is essential for measuring endurance performance. Individual areas of intensity and training are determined through so-called ventilatory thresholds. In contrast with the lactate diagnostics, the technical and equipment expenses associated with this method are much higher making it mainly suitable for ambitious and competing athletes.
