QAthlete Website Qwave provides important insight into your body’s response to exercise by allowing you to measure physical workload, daily stress reaction and recovery, effectiveness of fitness training and EPOC. Discover the actual effects of your workout with Qwave technology in order to train safely, more efficiently and more effectively.

Training Effect

Training effect indicates the performance and exertion level of an exercise session. Knowing training effect can lead to optimized performance. With Qwave, view the positive training effect of successive workouts on physical fitness and physical condition during the measurement period. Discover the actual effects of your workout in order to train more safely and more effectively.

EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption)

EPOC, or the amount of oxygen consumed after exercise during recovery, is the best parameter for measuring training effect. Harnessing this information is vital for targeting the optimal workout zone in order to improve fitness without overtraining. Using science and mathematics to train your body, Qwave puts the laboratory at your fingertips to empower users with this valuable assessment.

Physical Workload and Recovery

Efficient and effective workouts are essential to improving physical fitness. Qwave provides important insight into your body’s response to exercise by allowing you to observe and monitor physical output, workload and recovery. Reports based on scientific measurements allow you to prepare programs based on your body’s specific abilities, enabling you to progress and push the limits of performance without overtraining or risk of injury.

Weight Management & Energy Expenditure, Calories Burned

Effective weight management is exclusively based on the balance of energy intake and energy consumption. While the science is simple many people have a difficult time with maintaining a healthy weight. Qwave facilitates goal-orientated weight management by providing an exact estimation of the total daily energy consumption as well as the effects of everyday activities on energy consumption.

Daily Momentary Mental Stress and Relaxation

Stress is present in our lives in two major ways: momentary stress and cumulative stress. Momentary stress occurs during our working lives as well as during sleep and can accumulate over time. Continuous increases in momentary stress leads to long-term, cumulative stress which can result in physical and mental breakdown. It is, therefore, important to measure momentary stress, recover quickly from it and understand its effect on our bodies. Qwave is a proven method of measuring the physiological reactions of stress and recovery. Qwave is also designed to help and analyze your sleep and improve it.

Stress has two major aspects: momentary stress and accumulative stress. Continuous increase of momentary stress leads to increase in long-term accumulative stress and health level.

Stress could be either physical, mental or both.

Physical stress is caused by long-term exposure to negative factors, such as: irregular lifestyle; physical overload; environmental toxicity; cigarettes; alcohol; drugs; improper diets, etc.

Mental stress can be caused by factors like: insecurity; negative emotions; mental overload; confusion; rejection on a social level; family problems; boredom; low self-esteem; etc.

This system is based on over three decades of profound scientific and medical researches of highly renowned medical professors and different scientific institutes.

Stress means different things to different people. In common language, people recognise a state of having too much expected of them, of being under pressure or strain, of being barely able to cope with some external demand which is both excessive and prolonged. It has a number of synonyms, but they all carry the connotation of unreasonable demands being placed on the individual in an emotional, mental or psychological sense.

A similar concept underlies the term stress in the physical sciences, a deforming force exerted on an object or structure that, if not resisted, would damage or destroy the object. The analogy is graphic and obvious. Scientists in the biological and health sciences also use stress in similar manner with subtle differences. They refer to environmental demands that affect an organism which, if not resisted, would damage or destroy it. It can also be applied to whole environmental systems. The common theme is an external factor that, if not resisted, would damage or destroy the system.

• Generates ST measurements for modification before, during or following completion of the test

A stress test, otherwise known as an exercise electrocardiogram, is a screening tool used to evaluate the effect of exercise on your heart and lungs. Because some heart issues only become apparent during exercise, the test utilizes a treadmill or stationary bicycle to produce results that can be tracked and measured. This noninvasive, diagnostic test measures your heart rate, blood pressure and electrocardiogram (or heart’s electrical activity) before, during and after exercise. The level of exertion is increased gradually during the test to ascertain whether or not the heart and lungs are receiving enough oxygen and performing properly.

Vitality Test It is widely recognized that Orthostatic testing is one of the most effective methods of measuring subtle changes in cardiovascular function, particularly the system's regulatory mechanisms. When performing the Orthostatic test, the patient sits down for several minutes resting peacefully and then stands up. When the body position shifts from supine or seated to standing, specific changes in heart rate and blood pressure occur as a compensatory reaction of the body. Testing helps to assess the ability of both sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to adequately respond to regulatory challenge caused by gravitational shift in the body's blood mass. The test result (i.e. the orthostatic heart rate) is the difference between the heart rates at supine rest and at standing position.

For a healthy individual, standing up as well as maintaining the standing posture for several minutes causes no significant physical exertion. However, if there is subtle cardiovascular deficiency or the functional capacity of the body's regulatory mechanisms is inadequate then this maneuver becomes a significant stressor to the body.

Qwave Orthostatic testing is the quantitative and qualitative assessment of the fitness and health levels based on HRV analysis. The test is quick and effective and begins with the attachment of simple, noninvasive electrodes, attached as instructed. The candidate is instructed to stand for two minutes followed by sitting for 30 seconds followed by standing for 30 seconds. The full process is repeated alternately for three minutes. The data collected from mean cardio tachogram and spectrum is analyzed to produce eventual results in both quantitative and qualitative format.

Autonomic Balance Analysis - ANS Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a physiological function whereby the time interval between heart beats varies. These variations in heart rate reflect the quality of cardiovascular autonomic function. Autonomic function or function of the autonomic/visceral nervous system regulates involuntary action (eg. respiration, digestion) of the intestines, heart, smooth muscle, and glands. This function is divided into two physiologically and anatomically distinct, mutually antagonistic subsystems: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

Qwave systems provide HRV testing which enable physicians to monitor the activity of both the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in order to accurately assess the state of a patient's autonomic function.

Qwave provides a two-pronged approach to patient evaluation. Firstly, Qwave is able to detect specific types of autonomic dysfunction which can consequently be linked to a multitude of clinical diagnoses. Secondly, Qwave can be utilized for thorough, comprehensive assessments and physiological monitoring which provide physicians with a detailed and thorough patient appraisal which can often be overlooked in standard evaluations.

The wide range of clinical applications for Qwave makes it principally different from all other classes of diagnostic devices. Qwave allows the physician to thoroughly investigate modalities:

* Assessment of resting autonomic balance
* Assessment of reaction of the ANS on orthostatic intervention
* Assessment of autonomic reaction during Valsalva maneuver and deep breathing
* Sympathetic and Parasympathetic autonomic balance correction

Pulse wave is a physiological phenomenon, observable and measurable in the arterial system during blood circulation. During one heart systole a certain blood volume is expelled. This propagates through the arteries due to the reciprocal transformation between kinetic energy of a segment of the expelled blood volume and the potential energy of a stretched segment of the resilient vascular wall. We can observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave. It can be used for classification of the artery elasticity.

The condition of the small and large arteries is key to prevention and diagnosis of cardio-vascular related illness. In particular, the stiffness and augmentation of the major arteries is a strong indication of potential health problems including heart attacks, heart failure, sclerosis, and renal complications. PWV Analysis and arterial stiffness indexes (EEI, DDI and DEI) can suggest to healthcare professional to begin appropriate treatment long before the symptoms or clinical signs appear.

Age and systolic pressure strongly correlate with PWV. In fact, the most important factor contributing to increase in PWV is age because of increased arterial stiffness caused by medial calcification and loss of elasticity. The measurement of pulse wave velocity is useful in the study of the effects of aging, vascular diseases, vaso-dilating and vaso-constricting agents on arteries.

Qwave Pulse Wave Velocity measurement is a convenient method of quantifying arterial stiffness and augmentation. PWV provides invaluable insight into cardiovascular health, management of disease progression and monitoring the effects of medication, treatments, lifestyle and dietary habits.

Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of variations in the heart rate. It is usually calculated by analyzing the time series of beat-to-beat intervals from ECG or arterial pressure tracings.

Various measures of heart rate variability have been proposed, which can roughly be subdivided into time domain, frequency domain and non-linear measures. HRV is regarded as an indicator of the activity of autonomic regulation of circulatory function. It also regarded as the definitive method of analyzing the activity of the autonomic nervous system. Alteration (mostly reduction) of HRV has been reported to be associated with various pathologic conditions like hypertension, hemorrhagic shock, and septic shock. It has found its role as a predictor of mortality after an acute myocardial infarction.

Time Domain
A simple example of a time domain measure is the calculation of the standard deviation of beat-to-beat intervals. Other time domain measures include root mean square of the differences between heart beats (rMSSD), NN50 or the number of normal to normal complexes that fall within 50 milliseconds, and pNN50 or the percentage of total number beats that fall with 50 milliseconds. SDNN has been strongly corelated to overall variability, while rMSSD relates to the parasympathetic nervous system activity on heart rate.

Frequency Domain
A common frequency domain method is the application of the discrete Fourier transform also known as the Fast Fourier transform, to the beat-to-beat interval time series. That expresses the amount of variation for different frequencies. Several frequency bands of interest have been defined in humans.
