Lech Footballer’s examinations – Gergo Lovrencsics during the Delos test.
During this time, from the left side of entrance A, there will be a Rehasport Clinic stand with several attractions. One of which will be the possibility to see the devices on which players, such as for example
‘Kolejorz”, undergo regular tests. Those interested will be able to try to pass such a test. It will include elements of biomechanical functional assessment (Delos Riva Test and FMS), physiotherapy consultation and an evaluation of fat and lean body mass (study of body composition).
The Delos Riva Test and FMS may seem to sound strange.The Delos system allows to assess the ability to maintain a patient’s balance, by standing on one leg on the floor or on a moving platform. FMS, however, is a set of seven tests that give the opportunity to assess the quality of movement patterns and indicates weaker links in the body, being more susceptible to injury.
The person who obtains the highest score in the Delos Test will be able to undergo a complete biomechanical assessment test at Rehasport Clinic .
