BODY COMPOSITION AND BLOOD TESTS
It’s a free medical research which will be conducted by Poznań University of Physical Education during WMACI 2019.
We invite all athletes for free preventive tests.
Important: You will receive your results immediately after test completion!
What we test:
You will receive information regarding your red and white blood cell count, hemoglobin content, hematocrit, and blood platelet count.
Blood samples will be taken at rest from the vein in your arm by qualified medical personnel. Blood sample analysis will be immediately carried out on an automatic hematology analyzer Sysmex XS1000i (Sysmex America, USA). The small amount of blood collected (around 3 ml) will not in any way affect your performance during competition.
BODY COMPOSITION AND HYDRATION
You will receive information regarding fat mass, skeletal muscle mass, total body water content and metabolic age.
The test is non-invasive and lasts only 1 minute. It is performed using the body bioimpedance measurement device (X-contact 356, Jawon Medical, Korea). It consists of maintaining an upright standing position on a platform with built in electrodes.
