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.
A preliminary medical examination is conducted ,before a stress test is carried out, to those who are not in possession ofcertificate of fitness for competitive sports order to assess the health conditions and the absence of contraindications.The specialist visit, according to individual needs, is aimed at the general analysis of the medical aspects related to sporting agonistic or healthy sport, or to specific issues related to the subject (eg chronic fatigue, muscular pain, osteo-articular pain, difficulty retrieving etc.). According to the cases can be performed by the sports physician or traumatologist of the sport.
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.
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.
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).
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.
This looks at the medical and sporting aspects relating to teams as a whole: from evaluation of the group’s blood tests to monitoring training loads, the whole session is aimed at preventing injuries and maintaining high performance.
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).
A test carried out whilst pedalling on an exercise bike in the laboratory during incremental exercise to maximum in accordance with the Mader protocol. During the exercise, a set of measurements are taken in relation to the concentration of lactate in the blood (via subsequent droplets drawn from the earlobe) with increasing power loads to establish the anaerobic threshold. The test is used to monitor the athlete’s level of fitness throughout the season and to identify training patterns with reference points based on heart rate and/or strength.
This type of test allows us to assess energy efficiency during cycling. The assessment is carried out using an exercise bike and making the athlete hold increasing loads under steady-state conditions. During the exercise, the quantity of oxygen used and carbon dioxide produced is noted and analysed, in order to calculate the efficiency index.
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).
Thanks to the experience we have gained with professionals from the Mapei Team as well as daily research in the field of pedalling biomechanics, we were able to develop one of the most advanced, reliable and scientific dynamic detection systems currently available on the market. By means of very sophisticated software and through infrared cameras, it’s possible to determine the angles of a cyclist’s riding position during exercise. By comparing regulatory data gathered from dozens of professional cyclists from the Mapei Team, combined with medical and sport-based epidemiological information with regard to the most common osteo-articular and muscular disorders, we are able to optimise the riding position on both road and time trial bikes as well as prevent conditions from overloading that an incorrect position can cause.
Having cleats in the correct position is crucial for optimising push on the pedals as well as for preventing cyclist injuries caused by overloading. This test allows us to check that cleats are rotating correctly and, if necessary, to adjust their position.
In contrast to the ‘basic’ cleat alignment service, this test allows us to carry out a dynamic assessment of pedalling on your own bike, thanks to a special device. Making observations in motion allows us to identify the correct cleat rotation on the basis of the individual’s characteristics. This service is available for the following types of pedals: Look, Keo, Time RSX, SPD mtb, Shimano (PD Series).
The balanced movement of both legs is essential in order to prevent joint or musculoskeletal disorders. This test allows us to check that the legs are pushing the pedals equally and correctly when cycling. This analysis is useful for introducing actions aimed at improving balance when pedalling or, in the event of upper body trauma, to monitor recovery.
The test is carried out while cycling on an exercise bike in the laboratory and measuring the heart rate in relation to the power reached during incremental exercise to exhaustion. This test allows us to assess and monitor the athlete’s level of fitness as well as detect heart rate rhythms during different training activities.
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.
Reducing aerodynamic resistance is crucial both on the road and in time trials. This test, carried out on the track, allows us to directly measure the mechanical power that the athlete must develop to reach different speeds. The various aspects that contribute to your position in the saddle, in addition to the mechanical and technical details (wheels, helmet, handlebars etc.), can be analysed in order to achieve using the least amount of energy with the same level of speed.
Highly customised programmes based on the results of tests carried out and using the most advanced subject-area knowledge on training methodology. The training programme includes a detailed description of the training recommended for each day, with an explanation of the exercises based on : heart rate, pace (for running) or power to be developed (for cycling).
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.
