  1. 1. Assessment of Aerobic Capacity A Novel Rating Scale and Further Development of an Exercise Test including Analysis of Gas Exchange

    Författare :Anita Wisén; Fysioterapi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; kinesitherapy; revalidation; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Physical medicine; Time constant of V O2; Cycle ergometer; Perceived Capacity; Perceived exertion; Heart rate; Oxygen uptake; Reference values; Oxygen kinetics; Repeatability; Thresholds;

    Sammanfattning : Different methods are proposed to assess the aerobic capacity. A novel scale, rating of perceived capacity (RPC) based on metabolic equivalents (METs) from 1 to 20, is presented. Selected MET values are linked to physical activities. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The heart rate method for estimating oxygen uptake in walking and cycle commuting : Evaluations based on reproducibility and validity studies of the heart rate method and a portable metabolic system

    Författare :Jane Salier Eriksson; Peter Schantz; Hans Rosdahl; Jostein Hallén; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Heart rate; Oxygen consumption; Validity; Reproducibility; Oxycon Mobile; Douglas Bag Method; Cycle commuting; Walking commuting; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Sammanfattning : Walking and cycling to work can contribute to population health, but more objective knowledge concerning exercise intensities, oxygen uptake and the metabolic demands of this physical activity is needed for this and other evaluations. To attain this, valid and reliable instruments are a requirement. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Validity and reliability of a submaximal cycle ergometer test for estimation of maximal oxygen uptake

    Författare :Frida Maria Eleonora Björkman; Örjan Ekblom; Tony Bohman; Åsa Tornberg; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Sammanfattning : Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is the highest obtained rate of oxygen consumption during a physically intense dynamic whole-body activity. VO2max is an important factor for many types of physical performance, as well as a strong independent predictor of health and longevity. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Physical Fitness and Pregnancy

    Författare :Eva Thorell; Per Kristiansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical fitness; oxygen uptake; pregnancy; back pain; blood pressure; duration of gestation; relaxin; cycle ergometer test; physical exercise; perceived health;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives To assess physical fitness in pregnancy and to evaluate its effect on perceived health, back pain, blood pressure and duration of gestation. Also, to evaluate the effect of serum relaxin levels on blood pressure and duration of gestation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Measurements of physical workload with special reference to energy expenditure and work postures

    Författare :Eva Bernmark; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Exposure assessment;

    Sammanfattning : Background: There is a need in preventive ergonomics for accurate and valid methods of quantifying exposure to physical workload. Aims: Two technical instruments were evaluated for quantifying occupational physical workloads: 1) A heart rate (HR) monitor system to measure energy expenditure and 2) An inclinometer system based on triaxial accelerometers to measure work postures.
