This is carried out for the purposes of issuing a certificate of fitness for competitive sports, in accordance with specific protocols in place for each sporting discipline, required pursuant to law by the sporting federations upon registration.
Sports Nutrition Service.
This provides a complete nutritional consultation to athletes of any discipline, beginning with assessing your nutritional health and optimising your body composition for specific sports. A customised diet programme is provided, based on the sporting activities (both training and competitive), work, studies and eating habits of individual athletes. In addition, where required, advice on correctly supplementing the diet with special food for sport and/or dietary supplements is provided.
Diet for wellness service.
This service is aimed at individuals who are overweight or obese and/or those with health issues (dyslipidaemia, diabetes), who would benefit from specific dietary treatment as well as physical activity. We provide a personalised diet plan based on medical, working and family requirements as well as any physical exercise routines.
An examination aimed at detecting or resolving any pathological bone, muscle or tendon pain following trauma or resulting from functional over-training and errors in technique.
Examination and/or consultation for cardiac issues related to sporting activity.
This involves performing an electrocardiogram on an exercise bike (with increasing loads) during physical exercise, at limit and pushed until reaching muscle fatigue, in order to detect or exclude any disorders of cardiac function.
A dynamic ECG that continuously records cardiac activity for 24 hours, both at rest and during physical activity, in order to exclude abnormal heart rhythm (hypokinetic or hyperkinetic arrhythmias and conduction disorders).
Echocardiography comprises a group of non-invasive techniques based on ultrasonic emission in the range of 2 to 10 MHz. By echocardiography, the heart is shown in its entirety, this allowing to understand shapes and movement of the cardiac structures. This technique allows a diagnosis both from the valve and from the muscular point of view.
Thanks to the integration of static and dynamic baropodometric data and the work of chiropodist Gianluca Canzi of the Centro Ortopedico SNC (Orthopaedic Centre) in Milan, it’s now possible to create made-to-measure insoles that can improve the distribution of pressure that the sole of the foot exerts inside a shoe and, as a result, to improve comfort during long rides.
Determine body fat percentage and other anthropometric measurements, in order to establish optimal weight based on the sport practised or simply for a healthy lifestyle. By using skinfold method (measurement of subcutaneous fat), the ratio between lean body mass and fatty mass is calculated, an essential piece of information for monitoring individuals following particular diet plans or physical exercise programmes.
It’s carried out in combination with a functional assessment test.
This is a maximal test carried out whilst cycling on an exercise bike in the laboratory and wearing a mask connected to a metabolimeter. The equipment allows us to determine the maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max, the global index of cardiovascular and respiratory efficiency) and the relative anaerobic and ventilatory threshold. When taken repeatedly over time, the test allows us to monitor improvements in cardiovascular efficiency and identify training patterns based on heart rate (a key factor when creating customised training programmes).
Explosive lower body strength is assessed by performing a number of jumps on a Kistler® dynamometric plate. The type of plate used can be operated both in the lab or transported to the training field and provides very accurate measurements of the strength, height and power of the vertical jump.
This test is based on a method developed in Mapei Sport laboratories. It consists of carrying out a set of jumps on a Kistler® dynamometric plate. This allows us to detect any asymmetries in lower body push-off and identify athletes at greater risk of lower body muscle injuries.
By using a motorised press designed by Prof. Mognoni and developed by our laboratory, this test allows us to assess an athlete’s ability to sustain high levels of concentric and eccentric strength over time (specific muscle strength). In fact, by using electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves, it is possible to calculate the muscle fatigue induced by the exercise carried out on the press by measuring upper body strength at rest and at work. The same assessment can be used to calculate strength modulation capacity during concentric and eccentric contractions.
Isokinetic contraction strength assessment (Cybex©) at constant speed. This allows us to analytically verify muscular strength at various speeds during concentric and eccentric contractions. It also allows us to measure any differences between the right- and left-hand sides or assess imbalances between antagonist and agonist muscles. The data gathered can highlight any risk factors for injuries.
Using a purpose-built press, we can measure the lower body’s maximum strength in closed kinetic chain exercises during a voluntary isometric contraction.
Maximal test on an exercise bike lasting between 10 and 60 seconds (as per the Wingate® protocol) to measure anaerobic capacity. This test allows us to measure peak power in sprinting and decline in performance throughout the test. This type of assessment is essential for athletes who compete in sports where power or anaerobic capacity is important (cycling sprint, track cycling, hockey).
Aimed at teams, groups of athletes or individual athletes, it focuses on planning, testing and improving training loads to optimise performance and prevent over-training. The latter aspect is fundamental in the training process, and Mapei Sport has conducted significant research and gained extensive experience on the field with top-level competitive athletes in this area.
