Elite athletes must ensure that their state of health when playing high-level sport is optimal for competition. All football players rely on high-performance medical services. Without them they would not be able to maximise their talent and play at such a high pace. The same is true for SIA Academy players.
The aim of Soccer Inter-Action is to maximise the potential of the players. Therefore, it is necessary to know all the physical details of the boys and girls who make up the academy. This is the only way to reach the highest level without harming the health of the SIA Academy’s international players.
Gas stress tests at SIA Academy
Gas stress tests (gas ergometry) are one of the advantages of the SIA Academy compared to other international football academies. The Jaime I clinic in Catarroja has an agreement with Soccer Inter-Action to provide the necessary medical services for the academy’s players.
What is a gas stress test?
A gas stress test involves running on a treadmill or cycling. Electrodes are placed on different parts of the body to monitor blood pressure and heart rate. These data are also taken from a regular stress test.
What differentiates it from the gas stress test is the data obtained from the mask. This element provides information on the athlete’s oxygen consumption and respiratory system, carbon dioxide production, aerobic and anaerobic threshold. Fundamental aspects of the athlete’s health.
Why a gas stress test is important
The stress test is a common element in any sports club to find out if the footballer is fit to compete on a regular basis. A gas stress test is much less common. Only high-performance athletes such as SIA Academy players undergo this test.
The reason for this is to gain an in-depth understanding of the physical details of the footballer and how his heart works. Knowing the data provided by the gas stress test allows the player’s potential to be maximised in a physical state of maximum effort and strength. An indispensable element for all international football players at the SIA Academy football academy.
Elite physical tests at SIA Academy
Elite physical tests such as those carried out by the SIA Academy Medical Department at the Jaime I Clinic in Catarroja are very expensive if done individually. With Soccer Inter-Action it is part of the package contracted by the players of the international academy. One of the many services.
Continuous medical tests
The players of the international academy of Soccer Inter-Action undergo continuous medical tests at the Jaime I Clinic. The first of these is also a gaseous stress test to find out the details before the start of the season. Another one is done in the middle of the season to know the development.
In addition, each player has the opportunity to request medical tests in case he feels any anomalies or problems during training. Medical services are insured and free of charge for each player.
Agreement with Clínica Jaime I
SIA Academy’s agreement with Clínica Jaime I allows Soccer Inter-Action football players to have elite medical check-ups included in their annual contract. A fundamental support in the search for success in Spanish football. The fundamental step to continue growing healthily.
The Jaime I Clinic in Catarroja offers a wide range of services in addition to gas stress tests. Physiotherapy and rehabilitation, cardiology specialists, dieticians and nutritionists, psychology and much more.
