WEB Based Fitness Assessment Tool

Technology #2013-273

Background: Aerobic fitness is one of the best predictors of all-cause mortality but not easily assessed on a large scale accurately.

Technology Description: A web based health fitness assessment tool which may be carried out at any location and requires nothing more than a device camera, web portal, a step, and a chair. Using technology based light reflection and color spectrum, heart rate and respiratory rate, as well as estimates of facial skin blood perfusion and possibly oxygen saturation, levels can be assessed. These measurements would be entered into an algorithm to provide a gold standard measure of fitness level based on oxygen consumption.
