The Non-Motorised Treadmill Is Reliable for Assessing Team-Sport Running Performance

Writer:realleaderfitnessDate:2017-3-4 08:53:17
From consideration of all reliability analyses performed, the results demonstrate that the non-motorised treadmill system and team-sport simulation provide a reliable tool for measuring performance demands and most physiological responses of various team sports in moderately trained athletes. The reliability established across the three trials revealed a high reproducibility, with the majority of variables reporting a CV of <5%. Out of the four remaining variables having a CV>5%, three of these measures remained at a CV of ≤10%. It has been suggested that a CV of 10% is the criterion value commonly used to define an acceptable level of reliability in a test. Another common criterion used to verify a reliable test is an ICC>0.8. Moderate to high ICC were identified in 11 of 18 the physiological and performance variables measured during the team-sport simulation, providing support to the reliability of the non-motorised treadmill for assessing team-sport running performance.
