Samenvatting

The 'Fysiofitheidscan' developed by the KNGF assesses body composition (Quetelett- Index - Body mass index - and skinfold measurement) and endurance (Astrand bicycle test or 6 - minutes walk test), which is preceded by a 'movement experience' of six minutes, intending to give the participant a feeling of moving for health or moving for endurance. Further section of the Fysiofitheidscan are general strength ( hand grip dynamometer or push ups), balance (standing on one leg with closed eyes) and mobility (sit and reach test). KNGF provides no evidence on the validity of the tests and the whole build up of the test is experienced as complicated and impractical by some physiotherapists. The 'Modified Fysiofitheidscan' is built up in two parts. Part one is based on a literature review and justifies the choices of the final tests. Part two is a manual of how to apply the test in practice, which can be followed step by step. In several parts of the test advice can be found on how to analyse the outcomes of the test sections. Additionally there is an outcome sheet where remarks can and should be added to get more specific information about the performance of the participant. The literature review showed that several of the tests chosen by the KNGF Fysiofitheidscan do have a lack of evidence either within the choice of the test itself or within the execution of it. Even though most of the finally chosen tests are similar to those of the KNGF 'Fysiofitheidscan' changes have been made to make them more valid and user friendly.
