VO2max index has a significant impact on overall health.

Abstract

VO2max index has a significant impact on overall health. Its estimation through wearables notifies the user of his level of fitness but cannot provide a detailed analysis of the time intervals in which heartbeat dynamics are changed and/or fatigue is emerging. Here, we developed a multiple modality biosignal processing method to investigate running sessions to characterize in real time heartbeat dynamics in response to external energy demand. We isolated dynamic regimes whose fraction increases with the VO2max and with the emergence of neuromuscular fatigue. This analysis can be extremely valuable by providing personalized feedback about the user's fitness level improvement that can be realized by developing personalized exercise plans aimed to target a contextual increase in the dynamic regime fraction related to VO2max increase, at the expense of the dynamic regime fraction related to the emergence of fatigue. These strategies can ultimately result in the reduction in cardiovascular risk.
