ISHP INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENTS
5-1 ENDURANCE ASSESSMENT
An incremental exercise test where the athlete is instructed to exercise at a series of increasing intensities for a fixed time at each intensity. This test is designed to see how the physiology responds to sustainable loads compared to loads that are only sustainable for a brief time.
3D MOVEMENT TESTING
The test measures functional capacity and power production in 3D using movements commonly performed in activity, sport and training. The test determines an individual's strengths and weaknesses so they can better target their training interventions by using 3D resistance that engages the entire body to improve movement patterns and muscle sequencing. The data is used to see which component an individual needs to improve (the weak link) the most in relation to the overall performance of a movement.
Isometric testing defines a new standard in strength testing. Combining advanced sensors with real-time results and analytics, the isometric test is the most versatile system for testing muscle strength and imbalance, as well as for prescribing and performing isometric training for the upper and lower body.
HUMAN MOVEMENT TESTING
The human movement test uses force plate hardware coupled with AI and machine learning software to deliver body scans that diagnose movement health with the goal of reducing injury and improving overall performance. The objectivity of the test can help determine how prepared the individual is for different types of activities, which individuals are at a heightened risk for injury, and how they can improve their overall movement capability.
The vision testing is a non-invasive eye-tracking technology that tests, records, analyzes, and reports minute eye movement patterns at a level of detail not feasible through observation-only exams. The system analyzes reading skill, grade level and comprehension highlighting possible deficiencies and binocular vision issues. This test also objectively quantifies performance by gathering the amplitude and velocity of rapid, involuntary, and oscillatory ocular movements.
