Maximal Tests

Maximal graded exercise test, also referred to as a maximal stress test, used to examine the efficiency of the cardiovascular system during exercise. Tests begin with, mostly on a treadmill or ergometer and starting at a low intensity which puts only a small amount of stress on the cardiovascular system. As the test continues, it will get progressively harder. As an example, making the individual go faster or making the incline steeper will raise the intensity. The faster or steeper individual goes, the more stress occurs on the cardiovascular system, thereby helping to find its limits. Tracking and recording everything continue from the beginning till the end of the test. GSA facilities and cutting-edge equipment offer our specialists to measure aerobic capacity in both classical (e.g., treadmill and cycle ergometer) and sport specific settings.
