Spiroergometric testing

Starting from


Spiroergometric Testing provides a thorough assessment of your physical condition, delivering more precise results than any other performance test. While traditionally applied to athletes, this method is equally effective for individuals seeking a detailed insight into their body's state, especially those aiming for weight loss.

As part of spiroergometry, we conduct a general examination, measure height, weight, and body fat percentage and distribution. The procedure includes resting electrocardiography (EKG), resting spirometry, and a progressive exercise test on a bicycle, treadmill, or rowing ergometer. Our Kaliper Polyclinic utilizes the high-quality Cosmed device to ensure accurate results.

Spiroergometry provides us with a deep understanding of the participant's health, particularly concerning the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, crucial for safe injury-free training. It also offers real-time information on fitness, endurance, aerobic and anaerobic capacities, muscle strength, maximum oxygen uptake, metabolic system status, energy consumption, and other parameters. Based on these results, we create individual training zones and provide guidelines for further work.

The obtained results enable us to offer precise recommendations to different groups of participants with different goals:

  • Weight Loss: We determine the 'fat-burning' zone, the pulse range at which fats are most effectively burned. This range is individual and varies significantly from person to person.
  • Health: Spiroergometry helps in selecting the optimal type of exercise within the correct pulse zone, aiming to improve and maintain overall health.
  • Elite Athletes: The parameters obtained through this testing allow access to the most effective training and determination of individual training zones, resulting in improved sports performance based on scientific foundations.
  • Recreational Athletes: Utilizing the advantages of testing similar to elite athletes, they adjust the intensity of training to their needs and capabilities, which they now precisely understand.


Candidates are individuals seeking insight into their cardiovascular and respiratory system, as well as those exposing themselves to strenuous physical exertion.


Please bring sportswear and footwear, or lightweight clothing in which the patient feels unrestricted and comfortable. The testing session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.
