Samenvatting

At "Medisch Trainings Centrum", Geldrop, (MTG) it has been an increase in young people coming to the center for enrolment in training programs. To be able to test the capacity of youth in an efficient manner, several indirect VO2max tests have been developed over the past years. The objective of this graduation project was to find the best evidence based indirect VO2max test for testing youth (12-18 years) before, during and after a rehabilitation program at MTG. Based on the objectives a main question was formulated:

Which is the best evidence based indirect VO2max test to be used at "Medisch Trainings Centrum", Geldrop, for testing youth (age 12 -18)?

A literature search was performed in databases and search engines on the Internet, as well as in various books in libraries. Further, sources obtained from contacted key-figures and reference lists from already obtained literature were used. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were utilized to eliminate studies.

The outcome of the search process resulted in 18 included articles, whereby seven studies described the 20-Meter Shutte Run (20-MST), six studies the different Timed Distance Runs, two studies the Step Tests, and seven studies described various Cycle Ergometer tests. All included studies described the testing of aerobe exertion capacity in children and youth between the age of 12 and 18 years. Due to the heterogeneity of the included studies concrete results were impossible to present.

The test which was considered to be the best for MTG was the 20-MST. Estimation of VO2max making use of the 20-MST, greatly resembles the reference standard. Further the test is easy to administer as being well as cost and time efficient.
